Share your favourite camp stories.

We invite alumni to reconnect with their camp community in a number of ways, including alumni visits and family events, sharing photos and memorabilia, and more. Thank you for sharing what working at camp has meant for you.


Media and Memorabilia Sharing


Thanks to our staff alumni, we have a growing collection of photos, memorabilia, and keepsakes from camp. Please e-mail us today if you'd like to archive your materials with us.


Camp Stories...keep them coming!


We want to hear about a significant experience, an important person, or a lesson learned during your time at camp. Think of those sentimental, funny, or touching stories that you look back on as an adult and remember fondly. Your story may make you a contributor of the next issue of the Morning Dip.


Reconnect with Camp Friends


We’ve connected with so many alumni over the years, but we know there are more of you out there! Help us spread the word to help other camp friends so they can stay in touch, too. You can start by asking "Are you receiving the Morning Dip newsletter?" 


Alumni Events


Camp reunions are always a positive experience. It doesn’t matter if you went to or worked at camp in the 1950s or 2022, YMCA camp is a place to return: You are welcome today, tomorrow, and 50 years from now, as campers, camp families, camp staff, or camp alumni.

May this new year be filled with adventure, growth, and happiness, just like the past 100 years have been. Cheers to 100 years of YMCA Camp Ki-Wa-Y, and here's to another 100 more years to come!
