Alumni Weekend Information:

Greetings:  The 2017 Camp Eberhart Alumni Association Reunion will begin on June 2, 2017 with our golf outing at Pineview Golf Club.  Our weekend will continue with a cookout at camp that evening and we will go into full swing with a work project on Saturday morning and transitioning into an afternoon of fun with open program. Evening activities will be scheduled for Saturday and our weekend will conclude on Sunday. I will be forwarding the complete agenda for the weekend once it has been finalized.

Please take the opportunity to put your team together and/or sponsor a hole. All of the proceeds, from the golf outing, will go to your Camp Eberhart Alumni Association for the continued support of Camp.

I would like to challenge the younger alumni to participate in both events. I believe that the weekend will provide an opportunity to return to camp, build and rejuvenate friendships, and have fun. We had a mixture of older and younger alumni last year that contributed to the success of the weekend.

The annual meeting for the members of the Camp Eberhart Alumni Association will take place during the weekend. Once a date and time has been confirmed I will include it in the agenda for the weekend.

             Registration forms for both events are posted on your camp Eberhart Alumni Association webpage at .

Please forward this information to all of your camp friends and encourage them to do the same. Post to Facebook or other social media, too!

Life on the shores of Corey Lake near Three Rivers, Michigan, comes alive in this classic story about YMCA Camp Eberhart. Frank Cheley, known as “the chief,” writes about the early days as only a great storyteller could. Read what it was like to be a camper and counselor during Eberhart’s first few seasons.
