Alumni Weekend Information:
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
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

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