Sierra Camp 2016
Back by Popular Demand…
at Stanford Sierra Camp
SAVE THE DATE: May 12-15, 2016
SNBAA has partnered with Stanford’s exclusive Sierra Camp again to dedicate one spring weekend to SNBAA alumni, friends and family for a relaxing, nature-filled getaway! This all-inclusive 4-day weekend is sure to bring exciting new adventures, great networking, intellectual discussions, and a unique experience for SNBAA members.
Sierra Camp’s relaxing atmosphere promotes inspiration, a relief from everyday life, and valuable networking and idea–sharing among attendees. The area’s beauty and adventure attract so many that its summer camp program has been sold out every year since 1988, leaving hundreds of alumni on a waiting list. SNBAA members have a rare opportunity to come together and see firsthand what all the fuss is about. Gather a group of alumni together to experience the fun or make it a family vacation – there will be something for everyone.
So, coordinate with your friends, plan with your family, or get a single! Either way, we look forward to spending May 12 -15, 2016 with you at Sierra Camp!
