Lake Placid Team-Building Retreat




To kick off the new season, 117 CitySquash team members and staff travelled to Lake Placid for a four-day wilderness retreat at Camp Monserrate and Camp Holy Child. This year’s retreat marked the first trip that students from the Bronx and Brooklyn teams took together – making it the largest team outing in CitySquash history. Team members spent the week hiking, swimming, and competing in field games in the CitySquash Cabin Cup Challenge. Team members summitted five different peaks in the Adirondacks–Ampersand, McKenzie, Whiteface, Cascade, and Haystack . On the last night of the trip, team members had the opportunity to hear CitySquash college students and alumni reflect on their experiences with CitySquash. The weeklong adventure was a great way to kick-off the school year! A big thank you to the Reiss Family who graciously hosted the team!
