Camp Yale

Camp Yale

Camp Yale Emeritus is a summertime tradition that brings Yalies together wherever they are. It’s a time to make new friendships and celebrate the common bond between alumni. Gatherings are social in nature and are meant to be agenda-free.

Check out Camp Yale events from previous years

  • Eligibility: To be eligible for reimbursement, an activity must (a) be hosted by a recent grad or young alum, (b) be focused on recent grads and young alums, (c) be registered with the YAA as a Camp Yale Emeritus event, and (d) the host must submit the Request for Reimbursement Form along with at least one photo. Additional details below.
    • Activities do not have to be large – planning an event for a dozen or two is fine. 
    • Like Feb Club Emeritus events, Camp Yale Emeritus events will be organized by individuals, groups of alumni, and Yale clubs and regional associations. A Yale club or regional association can help arrange more than one eligible Camp Yale Emeritus event or can help arrange several Camp Yale events, only some of which might be eligible. That is, a club could have a Camp Yale event geared toward young alumni and another geared to a different segment of its members (though only the events geared toward recent and BOLD alumni are eligible for funding). 
       
  • Funding: The YAA will provide up to $100 for each BOLD event in reimbursement of expenses. Actual funding may be based on the number of attendees. (Some of the funding is being provided by alumni as part of the Camp Yale Emeritus effort.) 
    • Reimbursement requires documenting expenses that follow standard YAA guidelines as to receipts, etc. plus submitting to us at Camp Yale Emeritus at least one photo showing folks at the gathering. 
    • Alumni may directly purchase party supplies, food, and beverages from a store or restaurant for reimbursement. Legible photos of receipts (use your smart phone) are required. Most costs for smaller events are likely to be of this kind.  
       
  • Reimbursement Form: After an event, the host must fill out this form and submit the Request for Reimbursement Form within two weeks of the event, in order to take advantage of the grant reimbursement of up to $100.
