"There is no better place in all the world...
...than this camp, but that’s the thing we all know, so if you’re reading this, you probably feel exactly the same. One of the most beautiful things about ‘Laga is it is always your home, even on the day you return and don’t recognize anyone, nor does anyone recognize you. The ‘Laga spirit always lives on here, and in all the places it travels with each one of us. And I’m so glad I’ve been one of the people who passes through, and carries it on.”
-Christine Perry, 'Laga Alum, '03-18.
“Remember the times we've had here, remember when you're away. Remember the friends we've made here, and don't forget all our happy days. Remember beside a campfire, amid the mountains blue, that you're a part of Hochelaga and she is a part of you."
The mission of Camp Hochelaga Alumni Connection (CHAC) is to create a mutually beneficial relationship, where Hochelaga’s community can connect with each other, with camp, and where staff can share updates and opportunities to offer support. This Facebook group is a place to reconnect, laugh over shared memories and reminisce about long, sunny days on the shores of Lake Champlain.
Since 1919, Camp Hochelaga has been a summer home to girls and young women on the shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont. In this magnificent environment, the YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women reaches hundreds of campers, staff, and families each summer. Whether you were a camper, staff, family member or friend of a ‘Laga, or member of our very special community, we encourage you to share your story and the impact YWCA Vermont and Camp Hochelaga has had on you.
“We’ll meet again, don’t know why, don’t know when, but I know we’ll meet again on Lake Champlain.”
