Join the Chamber as Camphill Hudson hosts a Business Before Hours on Wednesday, February 20.  The event will run from 7:30 to 9:00 am. 

Solaris is Camphill Hudson’s Center for the Social Arts, and it is the first Center of its kind located right in the middle of Hudson’s downtown.  It is just two blocks from the Camphill Hudson homes, Solaris is a place in which people of all ages and abilities can find that they have a meaningful contribution to make to their world.  Solaris was founded in October 2012.

On Tuesdays they have Community Dinner nights.  In October, 2012, Camphill Hudson began hosting Community Dinners, and we now serve between 50 and 70 people weekly. Dinners are cooked and served by the Youth Group from Camphill Village Copake, and often include fresh bio-dynamic produce from Copake’s gardens. 

They also work hard to build community with local organizations through working together on meaningful projects and socializing.  Recently they partnered with the Hawthorne Valley Farm Learning Center and the Blue Hawk Nation (the Hudson City School District after-school program) to provide after school programming for HCSD students. 

Solaris serves as the hall for Camphill Hudson and many cultural events and festival celebrations take place there that are open not only to Camphill Hudson residents, but to the community at large as well. 

Business Before Hours’ offer excellent networking opportunities for area business people.  All members of the business community are invited to attend this business event.  Breakfast snacks and beverages will be offered during the Before Hours.  Camphill Hudson is located at 360 Warren Street in Hudson.  For more information visit their website at  There is no cost to attend, but guests are encouraged to contact the Chamber at (518) 828-4417 if they plan to attend.
