Alumni Association

GDI Alumni Association

Since 1979 Guided Discoveries has been in the business of making a difference in the lives of children.  Throughout those 30-plus years we have found that our staff have been just as positively affected as our campers and students.  We have heard a job at a Guided Discoveries facility being described as a life experience rather than just a job.  Many lifelong relationships have had their start at one of our sites.  Guided Discoveries would like to foster those friendships and connections through our Alumni Association.

Currently the GDI Alumni Association hosts an Alumni Weekend every other Labor Day weekend in Toyon Bay.   Please sign up for the Alumni Association to receive updates.


We'd like to keep in touch.  Receiving GDI Alumni news keeps us and the GDI community up to date on how you are doing.  We encourage submissions explaining how your time living and working at a GDI facility may have helped you in the real world or finding that dream job.  Alumni news is a great way to show current and future staff how the knowledge, skills, abilities, and connections gained at your GDI facility have been applied to everyday life.

The next GDI Staff Alumni Weekend is scheduled for Labor Day weekend September 2 - 4, 2017.   All staff and families from any facility, from all of our 39 years are invited.  We will snorkel, SCUBA, rock climb, visit labs, dance, sing and enjoy good food.  To register for the weekend please complete and return this Staff Alumni Weekend Sign-Up Form 2017. If you are interested in scuba diving during your visit please complete and this Diving-Guest Paperwork.
