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, run, snowshoe, or explore. Some of my activities involve more difficult routes, but a few are also suitable for moderately fit people who like a bit of a challenge. 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.
