Welcome home! Your years at summer camp might have come to an end but your camp memories don’t have to stop there!

Alumni Weekend is our annual reunion weekend for Cairn/Glen Mhor Alumni, bringing people together from across the generations to spend time as an alumni community in our shared home in Baysville. This retreat-style weekend allows alumni to enjoy camp programs at their own pace, enjoying casual programming, campfires, and joining the Directors in hearing what is happening behind-the-scenes at camp now.

Children's programming is provided throughout the weekend, so that Alumni can enjoy a weekend of reconnection and retreat while the kids get to experience a camp weekend full of exploration and fun! Alumni can choose to attend programs as a family, or take advantage of child-only programs led by Cairn staff.

We can't wait to see you at Alumni Weekend, sharing time as a community once again! 

**Food, accommodation, and programming are included in the registration cost. Please bring whatever you would like to drink - alcoholic beverages are permitted in the Lodge and Courtyard for this retreat.
