Memorial Day Work Weekend

We appreciate the help of volunteers who help us prepare to welcome campers. However, due to the modifications necessary to ensure camper and staff health and safety in 2021, we have canceled Memorial Day Work Weekend this year. Thank you for your support.

Annual Clearwater Community Breakfast

It’s become a tradition to host the Clearwater Community for a breakfast with the Board of Directors each summer. However, due to the modifications necessary to ensure camper and staff health and safety in 2021, we have canceled our Community Breakfast this year.

85th Anniversary Reunion 2018: You Never Grow Out of Camp

The years slipped away every mile we got closer to Clearwater. Anticipation as we wondered what cabin we might be in and who we might see. As we arrived back on the shores of Lady Tom on the Saturday after the end of Second Session, laughter echoed and hugs abounded as 75 of Clearwater’s daughters returned across so many decades to prove that “You Never Grow Out of Camp.”

On Sunday morning all were treated to Sunday Service for a beautiful reflection on “Echoes of Joy,” brought to life through stories, poetry, song and a serenade by a bald eagle. Emotions bubbled to the surface as we reflected upon what is so special about this place, and even after so many years, Halokwe and Sunny felt extra close.

Camp was bursting with joyful activity as water skiers skied, riders rode, people relaxed on the waterfront and the pontoon adventured around the lake. The dining room was magically transformed for banquet, themed “Echoes From A Distant Shore” on Sunday evening. Toasts reflecting on our camp experiences like many far-reaching waves and songs rich with memories filled our banquet evening. We celebrated the beauty to return again to Clearwater’s shores on this reunion weekend.

We were urged during a banquet toast to be as still as we could for the next 10 seconds and just listen. We’d like to invite you to do the same right now, listen to your own echoes back from the shores of Lake Tomahawk and plan to join us for our 90th Reunion in 2023 so you can treat yourself to friendships old and new. Because as Clearwater echoed back to us time and time again throughout our 85th reunion, you never grow out of camp.
