Hiking, Team-Building, and Fun in Lake Placid!

Over 100 CitySquash team members, alumni, and staff from the Bronx and Brooklyn sites traveled to Lake Placid at the end of August for our annual wilderness retreat. Activities included team-building games, swimming, competing in a multi-day Cabin Color Challenge, and hiking up one of the Adirondack high peaks. The retreat provided CitySquash with a unique opportunity to bring team members of all ages and locations together, allowing for both bonding and reflection as we kickoff another programming year. This was especially on display at the final campfire, when team members got to enjoy s’mores and listen to some of the high school seniors and alumni reflect on their journeys through CitySquash. A big thank you to the Reiss Family for hosting the team in Lake Placid!
