Overview | Surprise Lake Camp


SLC Alumni AssociationSLC likes to boast that we are the best in Jewish camping. One of the most important reasons is because of our alumni. Other camps simply don’t have what we do – hundreds of people who come up every summer on Alumni Day, an active alumni association that runs programs and reunions, comes for volunteer days, runs an alumni drive, produces a newsletter, maintains a museum, and helps camp in a hundred ways, large and small.

When our full time professionals go to camping conferences and the topic of alumni comes up, we are always cited as the model, and invariably the other camp directors who are considering trying to develop their alumni associations consult with us. It is something that we are proud of, and that our alumni should be proud of too.
