Motorcycle & Leather
Weekend: Hillside has a devoted and dedicated leather
community and it is from this community that the Mr.
Hillside Leather and Hillside Leather Boy contests and party
sponsored by the NE. Pa. Leathermen will take place Saturday
afternoon at the Rec Hall. The vigor that is put into this
one activity is awesome and hopefully you will be there to
see your colleagues compete. Click HERE to

As we get closer to the contests you
may pick up an entry form to become a leather contest
candidate. We hope to post the form here when it is
available. Also you may pick up a form from the office or
the Rec Hall.
The winner will represent the camp in
several important activities and enjoy representing one of
the largest gay camps in North America.
If you have a bike be sure to bring
it and join the annual bike run that begins and ends at
Hillside just in time for aSaturday afternoon party.
