Sandy Strong Weekend

June 7 – 9, 2024

What is Sandy Strong Weekend?

Sandy Strong Weekend is a new event for 2024 in the Sandy Island Calendar. We are extremely excited to offer it! You can read the full story of Sandy Strong here. But in summary Sandy Strong will be a weekend where we honor the past while we hope and plan for the future. If Sandypalooza is a weekend to prepare for the next season, Sandy Strong is an event to prepare for the nexct 125 season. We will conduct workshops on Facilities planning, Programming, and Culture. If Sandy Island has been important  to you and your family and  you feel invested in its healthy future, Sandy Strong Weekend will be a deeply meaningful event for you. We hope you’ll join us.


Join us on Friday June 7th for dinner, and stay through brunch on Sunday June 9th
