Camp Davis 90th Anniversary Reunion: August 16-22, 2019

Registration is now open for the 2019 Camp Davis 90th Anniversary Reunion & Student Cabin and Recreation Hall Dedication. See the Reunion Website ( for a schedule of events, pricing, and registration information.

Camp Davis Alumni Reunions have been periodically held to offer our alumni an opportunity to return to Camp Davis, visit with friends, family, and colleagues, and take part in many of the educational, recreational, and cultural activities available in the Jackson area.

A pressing need to renovate the student cabins at Camp Davis has put the alumni reunions on hold for several years as we worked to get the renovation project off the ground.

We are thrilled that the renovation project is moving forward in 2018-2019, and we are excited to invite alumni back in the summer of 2019 for a dedication of the new student cabins and recreation hall and a week of fun and activities at Camp Davis and the surrounding region.
