Centennial Events

Hale in Towne | February 28
Young professionals who believe in connecting kids with the outdoors convened in Boston’s Back Bay, where they socialized and networked with other like-minded colleagues at Towne Stove and Spirits.

Marathon Reunion | April 17
Past runners joined this year’s team at Doyle’s Jamaica Plain to celebrate their collective success. Together they raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for, and increased awareness of, Hale’s work to close the achievement, nature, and summer learning gaps.

Sunset at the Peak | June 2
Our second event for young professionals was an opportunity to experience Hale after hours. A guided sunset hike to Powissett Peak offered views of the surrounding woodlands (and even the Boston skyline) from the highest point at Hale. Afterward, attendees socialized with acquaintances old and new at a BYOB 21+ post-hike campfire.

Membership Beach/Hale Summer Club Reunion | June 23
Current and former members and staff are invited to kick off the season with a celebratory campfire.

All-Camp Birthday Party | July 26
Campers from across Hale will unite on Cat Rock Field for our annual All-Camp Fair—this year, with a birthday theme. That evening, partner camp board and staff members will gather at North Beach to celebrate years of collaboration.

Hale Music Festival | October 13
This family-friendly event will feature music, food, and fun in the late afternoon and early evening hours.

Founder’s Fête | November 17 | Invitation Only
This donor appreciation event will celebrate members of our leadership giving societies. Learn more about Hale’s giving societies.

Additional events, including Scout and Hale Day Camp reunions, are in the works.
