    Bear Canyon 40th Anniversary Celebration

    Bear Canyon holds a special place in our hearts and minds. It’s a place where connections are made with nature, and lifelong friendships with teachers and classmates are forged.

    This fall will mark the 40th Anniversary of the Bear Canyon Project. We hope you will join us as we celebrate four decades of outdoor education in our beautiful canyon with food, music, hiking, and great company.

    Please join us for a picnic dinner which will include chicken, barbecue sandwiches, vegetarian options, and more.  A cash-bar will offer beer and wine. One drink ticket is included with each adult meal.

    Our Ex-Ed faculty will offer guided hikes beginning at 2 p.m. Please plan to be on the first shuttle (1:30 p.m.) if you wish to hike.

    Enjoy old-time and bluegrass music by the the Virginia Creepers,  a local band featuring three parents of alums.
