YMCA Camp Kitchikewana – Alumni Information | YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka

As Camp Kitchikewana has been in operation since 1919 we take pride in our rich history and tradition. With over 95 years of camp under our belt “Kitchi” has touched thousands of campers, staff, volunteers, parents, family, donors and friends over the years. We call our alumni the “Friends of Kitchi” as so many folks are connected the camp in many different ways.

Each year we have a number of events to help the “Friends of Kitchi” stay connected with the camp and their “Kitchi Friends.”

If you are not currently connected with us please sign up to the “Friends of Kitchi” email list. We will let you know of future alumni events, opportunities to support the camp, and share camp stories.
