We are counting down the days til we can all be back on our beloved site swimming, laughing, doing arts or crafts, and just generally enjoying each other’s company!

Thank you to everyone who purchased honey through the Honeython— we appreciate your ongoing support of Camp! A huge thank you to the folks at Crerar’s who generously partner with us on this fundraising event. The committee is currently working on getting out the tax receipts for your donations, both through the Honeython and otherwise. 

Thank you also, to the folks that came to the virtual AGM at the end of November. We are doing some visioning and updating of our governance structures, and also re-organizing the committee a bit. We offered an update of all of these initiatives at the AGM. The Committee has approved the minutes of the meeting—if you are interested in reading them, please just reach out to us at campkalalla@gmail.com. We would love to hear your thoughts! We feel very lucky to have you as a part of the Kalalla community. Each of you has a unique set of experiences and talents. We are committed to engaging everyone in this community, and we hope you feel that your engagement is welcome and encouraged. 

Did you know that the campsite is available to be rented? We are actively seeking groups/organizations and/or individuals who might be interested in utilizing the site, either in part or in whole. Do you know a group or individual who… 

  • organizes retreats (for example, for youth groups, yoga, fitness, or wellness…) 
  • offers day camps 
  • runs special interest groups (for example, foraging, orienteering, photography, art…) 
  • is looking for somewhere to host a fun family reunion 

Please feel free to have them reach out at campkalalla@gmail.com.

Our trusty maintenance person, Rob Farley, retired in 2023. We will be marking his retirement with a gathering in the coming months. For past staff, if you have memories you would like to share in a card for him, please do send them along to campkalalla@gmail.com so we can include them as we wish him well in retirement. We would like to welcome Tommy Townsend as our new maintenance person. He owns a landscaping business in the Alcove area, and we are looking forward to working with him, and welcoming he and his daughters to the Camp Kalalla family! 

Camp Kalalla is looking forward to 2024… and we are looking forward to having you along on the journey!
