Campers' Group Bulletin - Summer 1998

Campers' Group Bulletin - Summer 1998

Here is the most ambitious Summer schedule in years. We have a camping trip scheduled almost every weekend. In the printed version of this bulletin, I had to reduce the size of the type so that everything would fit on one sheet of paper. Have a great Summer! See you around the campfire!

To reserve a space on a weekend trip or day event, call the leaders between Sunday and Wednesday of the previous week, before 10 PM. If you need information earlier than that, call David Levner at 718-897-1448.

To go on a camping or cabin trip, you must be a member. You can mail us your dues or pay at the site. One year's membership costs $12 for an individual or $18 for a family ($8 or $12 if you receive the newsletter by e-mail). Make out your check to Campers' Group and send it to David Levner, 63-36 98th Place, Apt. 5J, Rego Park, NY 11374.
