Winter Weekend, Annual Dinner and Wilderness First Aid

Winter Weekend

The Catskill 3500 Club hosts an annual Winter Weekend every January to bring together all levels of hikers – those new to winter hiking to very experienced outdoors people – to enjoy, learn and appreciate the Catskill Mountains. Hikes and bushwhacks are offered to a variety of peaks, including the four required winter ones. Information on next year’s weekend will be posted in the fall.

Annual Dinner

On July 9th the Club is returning to the Ashokan Center for our annual meeting. This time we will be up in the main hall which will give both outdoor and indoor seating options, an improved menu and a cash bar. We are limiting the number of guests to 200 so please register asap. More information about the event and the registration link are here.

Any questions? Please contact our annual dinner chair Michael Bongar at:

Day schedule:
  • 12 pm: access to the Ashokan Center
  • 1-3 pm: socializing with a cash bar.
  • 3-5 pm: annual business meeting and awarding of certificates.

Additionally, this meeting fulfills the requirements of our bylaws to gather membership for an annual meeting. At the meeting members in good standing (i.e. any member up to date on their dues) will be asked to vote on the slate of Officers and Directors.

Wilderness First Aid


We are working to see whether we can offer our yearly Wilderness First Aid Class again. We will publicize details if it will be offered.
