Thank you so much for your interest in hosting a kick-off gathering, we appreciate your commitment and help. We hope you will enjoy meeting and greeting other Agawam alumni, and getting everyone excited for our reunion weekend August 16-18, 2019!
Monday, March 18, 2019 marks 100 days until the 100th season of Camp Agawam. On that day we will officially kickoff celebrations for the 100th season by holding gatherings across the U.S and around the globe. These gatherings are a chance to connect with old friends, both in person and online, as together on the same day we usher in this momentous occasion for our entire camp community.
As a host, you would be agreeing to pick a location and time for your gathering, help us in promoting your gathering and receive a care package from us with treats to share with attendees. At the gathering we ask that you welcome each person, ask them to sign-in, facilitate conversation and excitement, and be sure to take a group photo holding a banner we will be sending you.
Here is a pre-event check-list to follow to plan and execute your gathering:
1. Determine a time and location for your gathering.
A few things to keep in mind:
a. You are welcome to host in your home, but that is not required!
b. If you choose to host outside your home, the space should be family friendly as ALL Agawam alumni and current campers are invited to join. Bars and restaurants are OK, but please be sure that underage campers are permitted at the location. Hosts are not required or expected to pay for guests’ food and beverage.
2. Call and email fellow Agawam alumni to join you. We can help you with contact information for alumni in your area.
3. We will be collecting RSVPs through our website so you don’t have to worry about managing the guest list. Then we will share the list of confirmed attendees in advance of the event.
4. Post on your Facebook page to be sure your Agawam friends know these kick-off gatherings are happening. Tag your posts with the following hashtags which we will be using throughout the 100th season: #Agawam100 #CampAgawam #CampAgawam2019
Thank you again for your help in kicking off our 100th season! We look forward to seeing you in August, stay tuned for the official invitation and registration form for the reunion weekend.
