The Camper Scamper was a great success…

...helping us raise funds to help send disadvantaged kids to camp!

On Saturday October 5, 2013, the Alumni Association held the 2nd annual Camper Scamper, a 5K Trail Run/Walk that took place on the trails of our beautiful 235-acre property. (See a map of the course.) This year we had even more participants, 99 walkers and runners... and the support of some great volunteers and amazingly generous sponsors who provided awards, as well as prizes for everyone's goody bags.

SEE THE WINNERS IN EACH AGE CATEGORY! Click here to visit the Pretzel City Sports website and view the race results, including each individual runner’s time.

The day was gorgeous, and the trail was enjoyed by all participants... see photos of the event via Facebook.

Alumni = Past Staff, Counselors and Campers

The College Settlement Alumni Association

In May of 1999, the Board of Trustees endorsed the formation of an alumni association comprised of former staff and campers. The first meeting was held on October 14, 1999, with eleven people in attendance. Currently there are 330 people registered in our database, and each year the list grows longer! The Alumni Association was established as a way to acknowledge and celebrate the role that the College Settlement Camp and/or the Kuhn Day Camp has played in the lives of so many people for so many years, and as a way to continue to bring people together who wish to remain involved in the mission of the camps. Whether you spent time as a full-time or a seasonal staff member, a staff assistant, or a camper, it is certain that your time at camp was meaningful and/or magical in some way… and we invite you to join us in celebrating that!
