Alumni Weekend

August 27, 2022








It was many moons ago when Betty John… in appreciation of the long-term devotion to camp by members of the CHMK community… established an Alumni Reunion Weekend. In doing this, she created a fantastic opportunity for alumni to return to the little ol’ Newbury… to breathe the fresh air… to feel the warmth of the campfire… to gaze up at starry skies… to swim in the soothing waters Founder’s Lake.

      But beyond the obvious allure, reunion weekend is also a chance to bring            to life once again, if even for a moment, those incredible feelings of                          childhood associated with cherished memories of being at camp. Yet camp           is more  than just a memory! It not only exists in the hearts and minds of               alumni… but also in the commitment of today’s campers, who arise at                     bugle call each morning to enthusiastically sustain its legacy.

Camp Ho Mita Koda remains healthy and strong! It’s no secret why… the spirit of camp extends beyond the boundaries of any one summer… spanning generations or caring alumni who ‘remember the times’ they had here. On behalf of the leadership of Camp Ho Mita Koda, we extend to you this invitation to join us on our ‘sacred tribal grounds’ for reminiscence and celebration.

This experience is sure to awaken many memories of former days. Cabins will be set up as they are for camp, you may be sharing with other folks, so arrive early for the prime bunk! We do have tenting options available.
