Camp Nakanawa TIES

Welcome to the web presence for Nakanawa TIES, the alumnae organization for former campers, counselors and friends of Camp Nakanawa. 

We’re strengthening our TIES
When TIES began in 2006, alumnae leaders envisioned the day Nakanawa would begin efforts for Endowment and Service. Today, that vision is reality as Camp fundraising efforts are managed by the Board’s Development Committee.
TIES is now dedicated to its new mission, Engagement and Service. The group’s primary goal is to reconnect alumnae to Nakanawa through reunions and special projects.
Come on and join the fun!

Reunion Weekend is Happening in 2022!!

After two COVID-y summers, the decision has been made to host Reunion Weekend July 15-17. Tent Row years ending in 1, 2, 6 and 7, and TR 19, TR20, and TR21 are invited to join us this summer. Reunion groups that missed 2020 (years ending in 0 and 5) can join us for 2023 Reunion Weekend, or hold until 2025. More information, pictures, and a schedule here.

Too late to get your group together for July 2022? See other options for reunions at camp in the coming year here.

We will be taking every precaution to ensure Nakanawa remains a happy, healthy environment for all. We continue to follow CDC guidelines and American Camping Association recommendations. As of now, visitor protocols remain the same as last summer.

TIES Leadership Council

We are extremely grateful for all of you who served as members of the TIES Leadership Council since the beginning.  Thank you for your enthusiasm, guidance, and service to the development of  the TIES organization.  Your dedication and leadership has set the example of volunteerism among our alumnae and we hope you continue in your steadfastness.  Nakanawa wishes to encourage more alumnae to join us as event volunteers, board committee members, city representatives and Tent Row chairs.

With the change in camp’s status to 501c3, the alumnae engagement and volunteer opportunities including being a “TIES Lady” will be arranged through our Volunteer Coordinator, Alex Seblatnigg,  

Donate to support camp

With the change in camp’s status to 501c3-pending, there are several exciting ways to support camp financially. See camp’s Donations page for the best ways to do this.
