A blast from our past!

Our Alumni represent an important part of camp history. Through the stories they tell of summer camp, they remind us that it is often the simplest of experiences that remain with us over our lifetime. Since 1946, Camp Davern has been a summer home for kids. While times change, the memories, the experience, and the impact of camp remain forever.

If you’re one of the many campers that hold Davern dear in your heart, it’s important to us that you stay connected. We want to hear your story! Help us reflect and celebrate our past with your memories and experiences, and stay connected to the people and spirit of Camp Davern. Let our tradition of excellence in summer camping continue into the future!
