Beaconsgate Boar Hunt

Sunday December 10th, 2023
El Cerrito, California

The Beaconsgate Boar Hunt returns to Camp Herms! We have a shorter day because it is on a Sunday, but there will be Boar Hunts (Heavy), Stag Hunts (Rapier), and a feast in the evening. All are welcome, including children, as the hunters need dogs to sniff out the prey!

As it is in the middle of Hanukkah week we are borrowing a menorah and we encourage those who wish to participate to do so.

There is a limit of 80 feast tickets. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by contacting the event steward at

Feast menu will be posted on Facebook in early December.
