Looking Ahead

Summer camps and backpacking continues through August and into the first half of September.   A number of to-the-summit hikes are also scheduled.    Many photos of these events are being posted on Facebook and a few find their way to a website slideshow.

In fall, the Board of Directors will meet to look ahead and the website will reflect any future direction for KHC.   The general plan is as follows:

  • September – a continuation of our hiking and paddling events as posted by hike leaders
  • October – most events will be local, single day outings
  • Membership renewals for 2016 will begin, available to current and active members
  • November – we hike right through shoulder season into the winter
  • November – new member sign-up begins, continuing until the membership cap is reached
  • In 2015 the membership was capped at 200 people; the Board will review this number for 2016
  • December – hiking continues through to mid-month
  • Mid-December – non-renewing members accounts will be frozen and new members accounts will be enabled in time to register for January events
  • Mid-December – snowshoeing starts when enough snow falls….
  • Christmas season – a pause in events for KHC
  • Late December – a few on-the-snow events will likely still be offered for 2015 members
  • Late December – new members will be able to register for January events
  • Some new-members-only events will be offered, starting in January
  • 2016 – we anticipate hosting between 150 and 200 events/event days in the great outdoors!

Retired now, I get into the outdoors most days to hike, paddle, camp, snowshoe, or explore. Some of my activities involve more difficult routes, but most are suitable for moderately fit people too. Since I am out several times a week, I post one (or two) event(s) each week and I invite a small group of like-minded people to join me. Kamloops Trails
