What is Friends of Camp Wildcat (FCW)?

Friends of Camp Wildcat is the alumni organization of Camp Wildcat. We work to provide support to Camp Wildcat, preserve the organization’s history, and connect past and current Camp Wildcat members.


Big Changes to the FCW Board:

In the fall of 2020, Camp Wildcat alumni voted to update the Friends of Camp Wildcat Bylaws and transform the Board structure that had been in place since 2006. The new Board will be smaller in size and scope, with five Board members providing the organizational infrastructure for flexible involvement from alumni through committees, etc. With many current Board members stepping back from leadership roles, the continuation of FCW depends on new people stepping up.


Seeking Participants for the FCW Outreach Committee:

A goal of the bylaws update was to create a sense of community among alumni, spanning geography and CW eras. If you have an idea for connecting locally or virtually with other CW people or might want to help out with those types of events/projects, consider joining the Outreach Committee. This is a flexible commitment. You will choose how you participate, based on your interest and availability!
