Pine Lake Club & Prize for Nature Photography

Pine Lake Club’s mission is to extend the Pine Lake experience to all Hartwick students and community members.

Pine Lake offers a variety of outdoor recreational activities, including kayaking, canoeing, maple sugaring, snowshoeing, sledding, and hiking.

In addition, Pine Lake Club works in close collaboration with Pine Lake Professional Staff and Resident Assistants to plan and market monthly programs and events such as contra dances, open climbing on the indoor bouldering wall or outdoor ropes course, community service projects, gardening, cider press demonstrations, local foods cookoffs and more!

“I know I’ve found a great group to be a part of when our meeting begins with, ‘So, how can we have more fun?'”

Alyssa Pearson ’12, former Pine Lake Club President
