Over the years, there have been generations of volunteers, with a special kind of dedication to Camp Lassen, who have responded to the challenge of running, building, and maintaining a vision. Past-generation volunteers include familiar names like Nopel, Meriam, Kelly, LaBreacht, Freeman, Seeliger, and Shackelford. These names were a small part of a group who were synonymous with Camp Lassen. The new generation has the same kind of love for Camp Lassen, and we have new tools for sharing the past and building for the future.
Those who join the Alumni Association will help keep that vision alive by building a network of support for Camp Lassen. Your membership funds will first be invested in this web site - in its development, growth, and continuity. We will be able to make a special effort to share and promote the history of Camp Lassen. In the past we have known this would be a good idea, but we did not have the ability to reach beyond our local area.
In the following years we’ll be able to focus on improvements, and on some of the regular maintenance projects that seem to change with each year. This will help insure that the Council Camp Plan will be updated, confirmed, and advertised with consistency.
Finally, we plan to hold annual gatherings of Camp Lassen Alumni, and a major celebration every five years. When past reunions were put together, a small group of camp enthusiasts would meet and try to gather as many friends and alumni as possible. We know we missed a huge number of alumni. We hope this new tool, the Alumni website, will reach all those whom we have missed over the years.
