Once a Gator, Always a Gator!

Welcome, Greenwood Alumni & Friends

Mission Statement

The Greenwood Alumni Gator Association's mission is to support Camp Greenwood.

We partner with the Camp Greenwood Agency and the Presbytery of Lake Michigan to promote Camp Greenwood and the experiences it offers, to foster a sense of community among alumni campers and staff, and to encourage a balance of tradition and innovation in improving the camp experience.

We do this by offering a unique perspective of former campers and staff members acting on a desire to preserve and share the camp's rich history and their own personal memories with future alumni.

Greenwood made a difference in our lives, and it is our hope that it can continue to make a difference for generations of campers and staff to come.

Goals

  1. Recruitment - So far we have 14 alumni who have said they can help with recruitment. If we go in groups of 2-3, each group visiting 3 or 4 churches, we could recruit at 15-28 churches for next summer.
  2. Fundraising - Initially, we’ll send funds raised in the name of Greenwood to Presbytery. We hope to establish our own line item, though, so we can track our funds and access them as needed for subsequent events, etc.
  3. Social - We will have periodic social events for alumni, to foster the relationships that began at Greenwood and/or have evolved from our common love of Greenwood.

Online Auction!


The auction is closed, but the results were wonderful, especially for our first fundraising effort!  With your help, we raised over $1,000!  Thank you to everyone who donated, bid, and spread the word!
