June 12-14, Camping Trip, Hickory Run State Park, White Haven PA
Important! All participants MUST follow precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, such as maintaining a distance of at least 10 feet from others, not sharing items or touching items that could carry the virus, or wearing gloves and a mask or bandana, and using antibacterial spray or wipes.

Join us and camp on one of the family sites we have reserved in this popular park. When With several activities available and much natural beauty, Hickory Run State Park has been one of our favorite spots for many years. Enjoy hiking and waterfalls near the campground, and swimming in Sand Spring Lake. Hiking the provocatively named Shades of Death Trail is far more enjoyable than the name implies! Tranquil Mud Run is just a few miles from the campground, and beautiful Hawk Falls is also close by. For a longer hike, you can go to Boulder Field, a National Natural Landmark that was created by frost heave during the last ice age. There is also bicycling on the nearby Lehigh Gorge State Park Trail. Our sites are secluded, walk-in, but only a very short distance from parking. Because of limited physical space on these campsites, we are having everyone RSVP for a tent spot, not per person, so tent sharing is encouraged, but not required. Flush toilets and hot showers are in the campground. RSVPS ARE PER TENT, NOT PER PERSON.
To reserve a spot for one tent, send a check for $63.25 made out to Campers' Group, to: Campers' Group, 48 S. High Street Mt. Vernon, NY 10550. Once the organizer or a trip leader is notified of receipt of your check, you will be added to the RSVP list. For immediate inclusion, pay $65 via PayPal on the meetup.com page for this trip.

Fairview Lake YMCA Camp is a very special camping experience! Just set up at our very private and large waterfront group site, and the camp will provide organized programs for the group, and you can also arrange to hike on your own. The camp sits on mile-long Fairview Lake in Northwestern New Jersey. Their 600 acres adjoin the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, providing access to the Appalachian Trail, the Delaware River, many hiking possibilities and breathtaking views. A fleet of canoes, rowboats and kayaks offer a wide variety of water activities. This is a great weekend for kids!
We have reserved a large camping area near the far side of the lake with a fire ring, provided firewood (!), tables, bathroom and showers, and even unheated shelters we can occupy if the weather doesn't totally cooperate! We are not taking any meals in the dining hall; you must bring your own food.
The Activity Schedule may include: Archery, BB Guns & Rifles, Climbing Wall/Gaga, Leap of Faith, Giant Swing, Boating, Candle Making, Stream Exploration, Outdoor Survival Lesson, Guided Swamp Walk and The Ridge Hike. This is a RAIN OR SHINE EVENT, unless the host or organizer indicates otherwise.
