For 81 years, Westwind has blazed a path to fostering life-changing outdoor experiences for children, families and groups; for 11 years, as the ‘Westwind Stewardship Group,’ Westwind has stridently conserved ecosystems and promoted environmental stewardship as a basis for sustainable living.
This September we will celebrate this special place and the magic it brings to thousands of lives each year. Westwind friends and its many alumni from Camp Westwind, Outdoor School and the other programs and retreats that call Westwind home are encouraged and welcome to join in this joyful celebration.
Proceeds from this event will support ‘Camperships’ (financial aid for children and families who otherwise could not afford camp).
About the Event

After lunch, attendees will settle in and enjoy performances by Westwind alumni followed by a lively fashion show. The runway event will weave together fashion and faux pas from every decade modeled by Westwind alumni. A nod to Westwind’s stylish history, this event is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
