Kiniya’s 100th! Celebrating Our Past, Present & Future!
Kiniya Alumnae & Families! Mark Your Calendars for August 24-26, 2018!
We invite you to return to retrace your footsteps for a wonderful weekend celebration of Kiniya’s past, present and future!
All former campers, staff and families are invited. Whether you were a camper under Miss V.B, Harry Brown, Jack & Mimi Williams, or Marnie McDonagh we are all part of the same Camp Community and we welcome you all!
Those cherished ties of friendship & fellowship have connected us all throughout the years – regardless of our age. We have precious shared memories of campouts at the Moscow Property, hikes to Mt. Mansfield, icy dips in the lake, camp songs in the dining hall, Kiwi Celebrations, Awards Ceremonies, Campfires, and many other camp traditions that still occur today.
We have experienced and shared in the Kiniya Spirit (and that spirit is ALIVE and going strong). This will be an opportunity to share your story and to express gratitude for the place and people who have made Camp such a powerful influence in so many lives.
Please join us for a weekend of celebration and friendship!
