A Weekend Full of Friends & Fun!

As each CLC summer comes to an end, campers say their goodbyes to staff and friends and immediately start looking forward to the next time we’ll be together as a camp family: our winter reunions!


December not only marks the beginning of the Holidays, but it also means the Chestnut Lake Camp reunions are just around the corner!  We recently hosted our winter reunions in New Jersey and all of our Division Leaders and Head Counselors flew in from all across the country just to spend the special weekend with their campers!


The weekend started off on Saturday as we spent the afternoon at The Fun Plex with our campers currently in 7th-11th grades. Everybody had a great time hanging out together, riding go-carts and playing games.  As much fun as the games were, the highlight was reliving the summer of 2014 as we watched the 2014 Video Yearbook together.

On Sunday, the CLC staff spent the morning bowling with our campers currently in 1st – 6th grades.  The reunion started off with warm welcomes from Debbi and Paul followed by some activities and games led by the Division Leaders.  It’s always great seeing how excited our returning campers are to welcome new campers into the CLC Family.  After bowling and pizza, the campers came together for a raffle.  Campers won prizes such as an ice cream party for their bunk, golf cart ride by Paul and a pizza party for the entire bunk in the brand new Canteen!  Being able to spend time with our Chestnut Lake family makes us look forward to Opening Campfire 2015 even more…only 188 more days!








After the Holidays, we will be hosting two more reunions in Maryland and Florida. To get more information on these events, please click on the invitations below.

Chestnut Lake Camp Reunions – Friends, Fun & Bowling

summer camp reunions

Summers at CLC provide us with amazing friendships and special memories that last a lifetime. We can’t wait the entire school year to see each other again and relive those special moments, so every winter Chestnut Lake Camp hosts bowling reunions to provide our campers an opportunity to reconnect with one another while also welcoming new CLC campers into the family.

While we host our reunions at bowling venues, it’s easy to see that the reunion is about much more than strikes and spares. Our reunions have become such a tradition with our campers that families travel great distances to attend not only the reunion, but also the numerous sleep-overs that have become a part of the reunion weekends.

While the campers love reconnecting with one another, they are just as excited to see their favorite staff members. CLC Division Leaders and Head Counselors fly in from all over the country, as well as overseas, to take part in all the fun! The reunion weekend is definitely the highlight of the staff’s winter, as they take a break from teaching and college to reunite with their summer family.

Many Chestnut Lake campers reconnected at the reunions held in New York, Florida and Maryland. Paul even reconnected with some Chestnut Lake campers in Paris! But we still have one more reunion left before Opening Campfire. Spring Fling is a full day of fun activities designed for the whole family. We invite you to join us at Chestnut Lake Camp on May 18th for our Annual Spring Fling. Please click on the link below for the invitation and more details.


If you ever have your own CLC reunion, don’t forget to send us a photo so we can put it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
