Dear Mount Hermon Community,
Summer is here! Hope you are doing well and staying healthy. There are things to keep in mind and mark on your calendar for enjoyment, entertainment, and a chance to get together and catch up with friends and neighbors.
Get Your Summer Pass
Bill Fernald is the Vice President of Guest Care with Mount Hermon Association (MHA) and he would love to give all residents the opportunity to participate in summer activities. Here’s his message:
“Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center invites its homeowners and residents to enjoy our facilities and many of the activities offered during the summer, June 12 through September 4, 2022. We encourage you to look through this website carefully to learn about all that is offered. How to Register: If you desire to participate, please fill out the registration form online at the link below, between May 2nd and July 1st.
Registration forms will be accepted up to Friday, July 1st. Name badge pickup begins June 10th at the Front Desk in the Williams Welcome Center. This is your proof of registration for the summer and must be worn when participating. Please allow at least five business days for processing registrations.
The free Basic Summer Pass Includes:
- Auditorium & Fieldhouse
- Fieldhouse Meadow
- Game room & Fieldhouse
- Family Fun Day (Saturday, August 13), including the Redwood Camp swimming pool that day.
- 40% off Redwood Canopy Tour & Sequoia Aerial Adventure (One per registered family member).
The paid Premium Summer Pass Includes all the above and:
- Pool Access throughout the summer
- Boat Access
- One full week of Family Camp
Some have asked me why the Summer Pass is necessary. It is optional if you don’t want to do anything with the Conference Center, but there are two reasons to have one. There’s a lot of fun things you can do this summer with your family! But, there is also a legal reason. The State of California has set up laws that prohibit strangers to be in the same location as children. This is why you can no longer just walk through Redwood Camp. For the safety of the children, it is important for us to wear a name badge and identify ourselves, when at the Conference Center, as safe people and not strangers. The Summer Concert Series on Saturday nights is an exception to this (see below). Sign up soon!
Camp Noise on the Field
Dave Burns is the Director of Adult Ministries with MHA and wants you to know there will be some activities on the field this summer which will make some noise. If you’re new to Mount Hermon, take advantage of his treat to Marianne’s Ice Cream!
Here’s his message:
“In the last couple of years there have been numerous home sales with some purchasers having a great knowledge of Mount Hermon Association (MHA) and the Conference Center activities that have taken place over the course of more than 100 years! Others may not be aware of that history and the countless families who come for Family Camps during the summer. Typically, each summer has outdoor activities that include games on the field in front of the Fieldhouse. This year we will be doing the same. Because of amplified sound on the field, we wanted to make our outdoor schedule for the summer known to all residents. If this is your first summer living in Mount Hermon, please contact me so I can treat you to Marianne’s Ice Cream served in our Fountain/Snack Shop!
Summer camps begin June 12.
Sundays – 5:00-7:30 ~ Opening Family Camp BBQ with skit
Mondays – Quiet (except for Monday 7/25)
Tuesday – 8:30pm ~ Zumba and S’mores on the field
Wednesdays – QuietThursday – 8:30-9:15 ~ All camp game

Feel free to call with any questions.

You can bring your own lunch and picnic on the field or tables (no food is provided). Redwood Pavillion is available for basketball, ball games, board games, etc. There will also be lawn games on the meadow and you can also access the creek/beach, the playground, and swimming pool. The pool will be open from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. Tell your neighbors and let’s meet up for a fun-filled afternoon!
