Yawgoog Homecoming Weekend

Join us as we culminate our two-year celebration of Yawgoog's 100th camping season! We have a number of events planned for the weekend of July 29-31, and hope you will join us in celebrating Yawgoog.

A generous anonymous donor, along with support from the Amica Companies Foundation, has underwritten the cost of most of the events of the Homecoming Weekend. To that end we will charge a nominal fee, and all proceeds will be placed in the Yawgoog 100 Fund.

You may attend all of the ticketed events for $15, or you may attend each individual ticketed event for $5. There are also free events with no registration required. Register early as space is limited at the ticketed events.
