Welcome to the 2016 Camel's Hump Challenge

We can't #Ski2EndAlz but we can celebrate.

The widely fluctuating temperatures have been less than favorable to the trail conditions for this year's Camel's Hump Challenge. Spring-like temperatures will be taking hold of Vermont next week. Our Committee has decided to officially cancel the 2016 Camel's Hump Challenge due to lack of snow. 

Instead, we're hosting a celebration to thank you for your dedication to the Camel's Hump Challenge and your outstanding efforts to raise funds and awareness about Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Almost $11,000 has been raised so far. Our goal was $30,000. We may not make be able to ski the Challenge but can we meet the challenge? Make sure to turn in your outstanding contributions or donate online now.

Please join the Camel's Hump Challenge Committee for a family-friendly celebration of your awesomeness.  Enjoy food and camaraderie around the Ring of Fire. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers.

Alzheimer's doesn't slow down for ice and snow - or lack thereof. It's a long and exhausting journey for the people living with Alzheimer's or dementia and for their caregivers too. The Camel's Hump Challenge is our opportunity to ski in honor of our loved ones AND to raise awareness and funds for local support services, programs and education outreach.

On behalf of the Alzheimer's Association, Vermont Chapter and the Camel's Hump Challenge Committee, thank you. AND make sure to mark your calendar for March 5, 2017 for the 30th Camel's Hump Challenge.

Think snow for 2017!

Typically the Camel’s Hump Challenge offers a rigorous wilderness ski touring experience where spirited backcountry Nordic skiers traverse around the perimeter of Camels Hump - the third highest peak (4083’) in Vermont’s Green Mountains - to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Originally founded by the late Dr. Warren Beeken, the Camels Hump Challenge was conceived as a fundraiser to support the educational programs and services offered by the Alzheimer's Association, Vermont Chapter.
