Happy holidays and New Year to everyone!  While many of you are excited for the New Year, we at the KAA can’t wait for the upcoming Kawaga Alumni events.

To start off, we celebrate the New Year in Chicago with a Northwoods style event.

Saturday, January 12th
Will’s Northwoods Inn
3030 N. Racine Street.
Chicago, IL

The event begins at 7:30 PM and we encourage you to bring all of your fellow alumni as well as your spouses and significant others.

As authentic as Minocqua itself, Will’s provides a great atmosphere to reminisce about your times in the Northwoods while sharing a Leine’s beer and cheese curds with your fellow Braves.

Along with this first event, the New Year gets us starting to gear up for the summer of 2013.  No more excuses, it is time to sign up for this year’s Alumni Fantasy Weekend (held from June 7-9).  To sign up or find more information, just click here.  We are hoping for a strong showing of alumni from across the generations, and want to make sure that you are there for all of the festivities.

We are in the midst of planning 100th year events as well. We will have a number of announcements regarding the 100th year and additional Kawaga Alumni events by the time of our gathering at Will’s.

Apart from the Alumni Fantasy Camp, we are in the midst of recruiting season for the summer of 2013.  It is so important to have strong Alumni support for camp, including the huge impact of word of mouth and referrals from those of you who attended or worked at Kawaga in the past.  If you know of potential family members and/or friends with camper age sons, please discuss Kawaga with them and put us in touch so we can continue to help Kawaga grow strong into its second century of camping tradition.

Lastly, as always, we want to make sure we are reaching out to as many alumni as possible.  If you know of anyone who you think would appreciate this newsletter, please pass it on to them or give us their contact information.

Wishing everyone a safe Happy Holidays and a pleasant New Year!
