For over 95 years, Camp Illahee has been a summertime home to thousands of young women. Countless friendships have started on the sun-dappled path to the riding ring, or in the shade of a Heigh Ho cabin in late afternoon. Each alum has helped make Illahee a truly “heavenly world.” We want you to feel right at home and look forward to having you play an active role in our alumnae family.
When I come to the 95th reunion, I am most looking forward to hugging old friends and sharing memories, smelling the pines, pushing a dining cart, singing old songs and maybe learning a new one, ringing the bell, having a cheerwine behind Curtis, sitting on the refreshed McLeod porch, and listening to taps at the end of the day. I guess I’m looking forward to every Heavenly bit of it!
Patti Dalis Sistrunck, 1987-99
