HSR Alumni Weekend

Friday August 9 – Sunday August 11, 2019

This year’s HSRSAA Alumni Weekend will be held, as always, the weekend following the August holiday Monday, and will include camping, cookouts, Saturday dinner with staff in the Hub, the annual Hub ‘n’ Cub open mic, the awarding of this year’s HSRSAA Bursary, and some other opportunities to enjoy what the camp and its property have to offer. We will work with the new director to see about organizing some Saturday afternoon programs (archery and climbing wall have been popular Saturday afternoon activities in previous years) as well as an evening barge tour of the lake. There will of course be plenty of time for hikers to explore the trails, paddlers to take out a boat and swimmers to go jump in the lake.

The HSRSAA Annual General Meeting will be held on the Sunday morning, which is an important opportunity for the Executive to report on its activities over the past year as well as hear fresh ideas from the membership on future directions.

This is an excellent opportunity to return to HSR to hang around with staff past, long-past and present, who all shared the common experience of spending the summer months working there. We hope to see you all there.
