Registration Now Open: Alumni Weekend 2018

Visit Camp Rising Sun this summer for the 2018 Alumni Weekend! From July 20th to July 22nd, we welcome all alumni, families, and friends, to Camp Rising Sun for the annual Alumni Weekend. Join us for singing, dining, projects, council and the annual trip to Holy Cow ice-cream. This is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with alumni, LAJF Staff and the Board of Directors.

The reunion occurs between the two Camp sessions, allowing our alumni to step back in time and be campers again. Relive your favorite activities, connect with old friends and make new ones. You can even sleep on tent hill with your campmates or your whole family.

If you opt to stay at the Rhinebeck Motel, we have arranged for a special room price of $130 per night. To receive this special price, you must book your room before March  31, by calling (845) 876-5900. Reference Camp Rising Sun during booking. Contact us with questions.

During the weekend, we will be celebrating the following reunion years: ‘68, ‘78, ‘88, ‘93, ‘98, ‘08, and ‘13. If you would like to join us in organizing your reunion, feel free to reach out! Contact us at to get connected with the reunion representative from your year.
