Event description

Description

What staff can attend?

For this first event, we're limiting it to staff from 1995-2001. That was a distinct era in the history of camp and the programming for the reunion will be an homage to that. If the event is a success, we'll look to opening it up to other staff for future reunions.

What does my ticket cover?

Kelly offered us the camp for free, but one of the purposes of this reunion is to raise funds to support Tuckabatchee, so we're paying our way like the grown-ups we are. The ticket price includes all of your meals in the dining hall (including a hobo meal over the fire on the first night), lodging in the spacious and rustic cabins (bring your own linens & sleeping bags), pool access, program supply costs, and a Camp Tuckabatchee staff souvenir.

What if I want to donate something extra to Camp?

We had thought about providing an option through Eventbrite, but they charge a service fee. To make your dollar go the farthest, you can cut a check or give cash directly to camp via Kelly at the event. Can't make it but still want to show your support for Tuckabatchee? Visit the website to learn how.

Can I invite friends and/or family?

Kelly is always open to hosting alumni for a visit to see their own stomping grounds. For this event however, we're intentionally recreating the look and feel of staff training, even down to using music from the 90s so only staff who worked during the specified timeframe are invited.

If this event is successful in raising support for camp and there's interest, we'll look at future events with wider invitation distributions.

What if I get homesick?

It's natural and happens to many adults who attend residential camp. Some ways you can beat "It" (we don't reference homesickness) are to write a letter to our camp flying squirrel, Colby. You can think about the programs and experiences you're looking forward to.
