Alumni

Welcome Alumni!

No matter how long it’s been since your last summer at camp, we’d love to reconnect with you!

Not too much has changed at Keewaydin’s camps over the past 125 years. While Songadeewin has moved from Lake Willoughby to the shores of Lake Dunmore, if you walk around Keewaydin Temagami’s base camp or the campus of Keewaydin Dunmore it would look largely the same as you remember it.  Most importantly, the values upon which the camps were founded still guide the programs and the experiences  they provide.   

We are dedicated to keeping alumni in touch with each other, and with Keewaydin. If you are not currently receiving regular communication from us, we want to hear from you! There are multiple ways for you to connect with old friends and enjoy camp life, from reunions at camp to work weekends to regional alumni gatherings and Open Houses in cities across North America. Check out our calendar to find an event that works for you!

We have lots of ways for you to stay in the loop  through our publications, E-News, and special announcement emails.  You can let us know what you would like to get when you update your contact information.

Below you can also find camp photos, dig into the  camp publications archives, or learn more about a stay at Ojibway Family Lodge!


2021 Alumni Family Weekend                             on Lake Dunmore: Canceled

Given the challenges the Delta variant is posing, including a growing number of break-through cases, we have decided to cancel this summer’s Alumni Family Weekend and special celebrations: the dedication of “The Lolly” (Songadeewin’s new Trip Planning Center), and the celebration of the lives of Dan Patch and Peggy Breed Marsh.

This was a very hard decision to make, but it is clear that the Covid landscape has changed and, after much deliberation, we concluded that it would not be responsible to open up camp to close to 100 people coming from all over the east coast.

 We were excited to welcome Songa and Dunmore alumni back to Lake Dunmore, and our hearts are heavy that we will have to wait another year to see each other.  We wish you well and know that you will keep the embers of the Keewaydin spirit burning in your hearts!  We look forward to seeing you all on the shores of Lake Dunmore in the future.

Ojibway Family Lodge

A Place Untouched, An Experience Apart

In a noisy, hectic world, it’s easy to believe that places steeped in nature’s soothing silences have vanished forever, and lasting tranquility is no longer possible to find.

But spend just a single hour at Ojibway Lodge and you’ll discover that these and many other things you thought were gone for good can be still be had. In the northern reaches of Lake Temagami, a magnificent north woods Eden is waiting. You’ll find it along wilderness shores that stretch for 4,800 untouched kilometers across a timeless dominion blessed with 1,500 hidden island jewels. This is the land of Ojibway. And it’s yours to wander.

For more information and to book your stay, please visit Ojibway’s website.
