A traditional autumn camping weekend organized by the HSE Extreme Sports Club will take place on September 23 and 24. The event is open not only to HSE students and staff, but for backpacking lovers from other universities as well.
Organized by Extreme Sports Club HSE, HSE Camping Weekend is a great chance to spend two days out of the city, meet a large number of Russian students, and enjoy the beauty of the countryside. Sitting around the campfire and singing guitar songs together is something that will definitely give you warm memories for a long time.
Studies and work can only be effective if recreation is also organized properly. The HSE Extreme Sports Club has come up with several ideas on how to have an active and energetic rest in spring and summer.

This year, the participants will be staying close to the ski lifts, which means that they will be the first to ski on fresh snow slopes.
