“We welcome you to Camp Dixie, we’re mighty glad you’re here”
Hello Alumni and welcome to our Centennial site!
It doesn’t matter if you were in Wiley at the boy’s camp or up in Clayton at the girl’s camp–you were a Dixie Camper! Whether you were a camper under Pop J, Dr. Sutton, Scotty, Miss Stokes, the Kotilas, or Miss Ann, we are all part the same family – the Dixie Family.
Those cherished ties of green and red have connected us all throughout the years – regardless of our age. We have precious memories of rainy campouts, hikes to Black Rock, icy dips in the lake, camp songs, emblems, triangles, bug juice, council fire log, chocolate, camp food and many other camp traditions. We have experienced and shared in the Dixie Spirit (and that spirit is ALIVE and going strong).
As we start preparations to celebrate Dixie’s Centennial, we look back on our rich history and honor those leaders and campers who came before us. Each brought or did something that helped make Dixie such a special place.
It is with great honor, enthusiasm and excitement that we announce the long-awaited 100th Anniversary of Camp Dixie.
For all of us connected to Camp Dixie, this will be an opportunity to celebrate this milestone and to express gratitude for the place and people who have made Camp Dixie such a powerful influence in so many lives.
On August 1 – 3, 2014, we invite you to return to Camp Dixie. All campers, staff and families from any of our 100 years are invited to attend.
During the coming months and weeks, we will be posting more information about the Centennial as well as an ongoing list of former Dixie Boys and Girls who are planning on attending. So you will want to check back often.
We welcome your comments and suggestions and look forward to hearing from you.
“Hail, hail the gang’s all here, and we welcome you to Camp Dixie —for Boys —for Girls”
Following the Gleam,
Camp Dixie, Director
