The magic thing about HOME is that it feels good to leave, and even better to come back.

Welcome Home Mountainside Alumni! This is where memories are created, friendships are formed, and we experience monumental transformations that help shape our lives. Mountainside invites you back to the Canaan campus for a day of connection, creative workshops, group activities and more!

This is a great opportunity to build upon your recovery network and continue building strong connections to support you along your journey.

Dress comfortably in clothes you can be active in and remember to wear sneakers.

This year we are offering TWO reunion options:

Friday & Saturday:

This first option consists of a Friday night campout followed by the Alumni Reunion at Mountainside Canaan. On Friday, arrive at Lone Oaks Campground between 3:30 and 4:00 PM for check-in.
