Welcome Alumni

Alumni Camp

Whether it has been a year, a decade, or what feels to be a lifetime since your last Camp Kirby adventure, we know the magic and memories of camp stay alive in your heart forever. Relive the magic and join us for a camp dedicated to you, our supporters and community members who know who we are and what we do. Alumni Camp is an opportunity to reminisce on the history and culture of Camp Fire Samish & Camp Kirby with old and new friends alike. Witness the growth and progress of our council and camp grounds while immersing yourself in the nostalgia of timeless traditions.

Alumni Camp is a chance for past Camp Kirby staff and campers to connect and enjoy the camp of your dreams! Some of your favorite camp activities, like archery, will be open during your stay. There will also be organized cookouts, campfires, Council Fire, and so much more! You’re also welcome to explore camp on your own. All meals will be provided. 

Save the Date: July 18th – 21st, 2024

Accommodations for overnight guests will be in our standard cabins (Fir Tree, Crow’s Nest, Big Dipper, etc). If you have any specific needs and would like to request different accommodations, please note this in the comment section and our Camp Director will be in touch.

Alumni Committee

If you have been eager to reconnect with old camp friends, there is no better time to do so! Camp Kirby is celebrating its Centennial Celebration in 2023, a remarkable milestone for all of those who have contributed to the magic of camp. We encourage you to seek out alumni members who are longing to reignite their passion for Camp Kirby, or those who have made a long lasting impact on your life, to let them know about this historic celebration in the works. We are dedicated to honoring our alumni from all walks of life. Do you know an alumni who would be interested in Alumni Camp or Camp Kirby’s Centennial Celebration? Let us know! Email info@campfiresamish.org with their name or contact information and we will do the outreach for you.
