Weekends at Chatham Hall aren't your usual boarding school activities, but are seriously fun! You might meet up for “Bad Movie Night” or a themed event hosted at a faculty home. Maybe you’ll tie-dye some clothes or grill out with friends or whip up a gourmet meal in the student kitchen (perhaps with a little help from a faculty member). Depending on the season, we have many different boarding school activities such as carving pumpkins, building gingerbread houses, and hunting for Easter eggs.
Off campus, there’s even more to do. The school regularly offers recreational trips such as skiing at Wintergreen Resort, swimming and boating at Smith Mountain Lake, taking in the cuisine of a great restaurant in Greensboro, and bowling or laser tag in Lynchburg, VA. Perhaps shopping, the movies, or dinner out in Danville, Lynchburg, or Durham, NC are more your speed? Trips to museums, concerts, plays, musicals, and festivals in any number of nearby cities are also popular options. Excursions to places like Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Williamsburg, VA, and Asheville, NC, are great opportunities to tap into the tremendous history and culture of the region.
Want to meet students from other schools? Board a charter bus to a mixer or dance at another school, or to a gathering at an amusement park, outdoor event or community service opportunity. Above all, choose the boarding school activities that are right for you.
