New Leader Open Cabin Weekend

The Hiking and Backpacking committee is hosting an Open Cabin weekend for trip leaders and co-leaders. The goal of the weekend is to get newer leaders comfortable with managing the cabin and building skills to help lead trips, but experienced leaders are still more than welcome!

More details from the HB committee below:


The event many of you have been asking about is finally here :) The new date for the Harvard Cabin leader/co-leader only weekend is set for Nov 22-24 (Fri night through Sun). This event is open to ONLY Boston Chapter Leaders and Co-leaders that are interested in leading hikes at the hidden gem in the whites (Harvard Cabin).

This will be a fun filled weekend with leaders/co-leaders to learn all about how to run a successful Harvard Cabin event in different seasons and for different skill levels. We will have an instructional session which covers what you need to know to organize this weekend from reservations, opening/closing procedures, cooking/food, budget, and hikes in the local area at various levels.

You can come learn and relax (read a book by the fire) or if you choose you can even go out hiking on organized hikes with fellow leaders.

The fee for this event is $20 (normally $80) and is only offered to leaders/co-leaders. Space is limited to only 20 people so sign up fast before it fills up.
