Building a Better Future
Since 1925, we have been a volunteer organization.
We help provide opportunities for kids to escape the city during the summer and experience the amazing programming Camp Hale offers.
We also help provide a safe, clean living environment during those summers.
As a volunteer you can help too.
Filling the bunks, keeping the house.
The Camp Hale Alumni Association (CHAA) raises funds for scholarships to send kids to Camp that otherwise might not be able to afford it.
We host a variety of events that raise funds not only to sponsor kids, but also to help maintain Camp.
Here's how you can help by making a tax deductible donation!
Preserving old and making new.
As this world changes, CHAA strives to strives to preserve the century old traditions at Camp Hale.
We hope to maintain the lifelong friendships that start there, and remember the old songs, customs, and joys that we grew up with.
We also embrace the new traditions created at Camp; new songs, new people, new activities that better relate to this new generation.
So, we also host Alumni Weekend in September. A chance to reconnect with the old cabin mates, counselors, and friends...and meet the new ones.
