Geneva Glen's 95th Anniversary Reunion Weekend and Celebration BBQ
Labor Day Weekend 2017, Geneva Glen is the place to be!
It's finally here! 95 Years of amazing camp experiences and only 4 days to celebrate – we better make the most of them!
Two magnificent events are happening this weekend: the Camp Family Reunion and the 95th Anniversary Celebration. The Reunion is a slow, sort of “rustic” getaway filled with good food, good air, good friends, and good memories and it's a great way to warm up to the huge Anniversary Celebration on Sunday!

What to Expect
We are working on making this weekend as much like "being at camp" as possible! Meals in the dining hall, jumpers, scrapers, upper hill activities, lower hill activities, singing, socializing, hiking, laughing, the long steep climb to ropes, rustic bathrooms, lumpy mattresses, chilly nights and lovely sunny days.
We’ll have a GG History Museum set up in Marathon, coffee on all day for hanging out at the lodge and catching up with friends. Great activities, a bit of fundraising, a ton of laughter and even more filling your soul with the Spirit of the Glen!
We are expecting to “sell out” with about 225 of you for the whole weekend and plan to swell our numbers to over 600 for the BBQ!
Adult Evening Play – this is an “adults only” event after dinner on Saturday. While the “kids” are having a cool kid evening play (like Jurassic Park!), we’ll shuttle the adults over to Twin Forks for dessert, a wine pull wall, a small auction, door prizes and a cash bar. The cost is $20 and includes a variety of desserts, one wine pull coupon, and an entry ticket for the door prizes. There will be a cash bar for wine, beer, and cocktails. Note: Whippersnapper babysitters will be available to watch over the little ones!
