6th Annual Lake Placid Team Retreat


During the last week of August, CitySquash traveled to Lake Placid for its annual Team Retreat at Camps Monserrat and Holy Child. A total of 122 team members from the Bronx and Brooklyn, alumni, volunteers and staff traveled together, making it our biggest team retreat yet!


Participants were divided into 5 teams and spent the week competing in different events as part of the Cabin Color Challenge. Along with the team competitions, all of our team members completed one big day hike in the Adirondack region, participated in team-building activities and had the opportunity to swim. The final campfire where, following tradition, the high school seniors addressed all of their younger teammates and shared their advice and wisdom capped off the retreat.


Thank you to all of our supporters for making this possible for our team members and a special thank you to the Reiss Family for enabling this retreat to happen for the past 6 years!
