Welcome Oconto Alumnae!
The Oconto Alumnae Association has been formed to keep the spirit of Oconto alive and a part of past campers and staff everyday lives.
We hold reunion celebrations every five years, usually a Spring function involving a meal in Toronto, and a weekend at camp in the Fall.
We love hearing how everyone is doing; careers, family situation, children etc.
Oconto Campership Fund
There are many unforeseen reasons that a family’s finances would prohibit their camper from returning to Camp Oconto.
The Oconto Campership Fund (OCF) is available to girls who have been at Oconto previously but for unforeseen reasons, finances prohibit their return to camp. It is also available to the children of alumnae who cannot afford to send their daughter to camp, but desperately want their child to have the Oconto experience!
Our goal is to continue to advance the child’s education and outdoor adventures through an experience at Oconto. Oconto offers stability, fun and friendship in a time of need.
