CASSU Presents… the inaugural Hart House Farm Weekend Retreat!

Welcome back posterCASSU is proud to announce our very first Hart House Farm Weekend Retreat! We want to be able to provide an event where the tight-knit CAS community could come together in a non-classroom setting and socialize… and what better way than sitting around a bonfire while eating s’mores?




The retreat will take place from Saturday, October 19th to Sunday, October 20th at Hart House Farm:

Cradled in the Caledon Hills on the ridge of the Niagara Escarpment, the 150 acres of the Hart House Farm is the perfect place for any form of retreat…and only 1 hour from Toronto. Hart House Farm welcomes both day and overnight visitors to Ignatieff House, a rustic house fully equipped with kitchen, central heating, washrooms, a piano and a cozy fireplace. The property also features an outdoor sauna and two swimming ponds.

We will be leaving from a determined location on campus by school bus around 5 PM on Saturday, and arriving back on campus the day after around 8 PM. You will be required to complete an online registration form and pay a $25 participation fee, which will cover your reservation at the facilities as well as transportation costs. We also request that you contribute food and drinks to one meal (either breakfast, lunch, or early dinner on the Sunday); a specific schedule will be hammered out once we confirm numbers closer to the date.

To secure a spot on the trip, please fill out our online registration form. Please note that your registration will not be considered complete until you pay your $25 registration fee. On October 7, 8 and 9, CASSU exec members will be available at Sidney Smith from 11 to 2 PM to receive your payment, so please make a note of one of those dates. Your participation fee will not be refundable, but it will be possible to transfer your spot. In the event you need to do so, please contact to facilitate this change.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email There are a limited amount of spots available for the trip– don’t miss out on what we promise will be a fun time! The last day to register is Thursday, October 10th… but you’ve pretty much made up your mind already, right?!
