September 2-5, Camping Trip, Rip Van Winkle Campground, Saugerties NY
Join us for camping and hiking in the Catskills! We have reserved two large group sites that contains campfire rings, on-site water, charcoal BBQ grills, multiple picnic tables, and a large canopy set up over the tables. With 160 wooded acres, an entire mile of frontage on the Plattekill Creek, a swimming hole, koi ponds, a stocked bass pond, children’s activities, a camp store, handicapped accessible bathroom and shower facilities, this campground has most everything a camper could ask for. Located near excellent hiking in the Catskill mountains, it is also just a 10 minute drive to Saugerties and 15 minutes to Woodstock NY.

RSVPs are per tent, not per person. Sharing and carpooling is encouraged! When you RSVP, you are paying for all 3 nights - the only choice available. The payment of $84 is for one tent with one person, which will cover the cost to camp with the group for the weekend. The campground prices have been significantly raised this year, and will be more costly to our group, but Campers‘ Group will be covering some of the cost to allow this trip to be more affordable to it’s members. If you will have more than one person in your tent, we ask you to please contribute an additional amount, whatever you can afford, for each additional person when paying for your tent space. Campground pricing for additional adults: $10/night, children ages 3-17 $5/night, and ages 2 and under are free. They also charge $24/night for each additional tent. During the weekend, we may split the cost of firewood, if needed.

To reserve a tent spot, send a check for $84 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 $86.74 via PayPal on the meetup.com page for this trip.

September 16-18, Camping Trip, Camp Taylor Campground and Lakota Wolf Preserve, Columbia NJ
Located in the beautiful mountains of Northwest New Jersey, Camp Taylor is adjacent to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and Appalachian Trail. Their large wooded sites and miles of hiking trails offer a unique opportunity to reconnect with nature. The howling of wolves, which can be heard while sitting at your campfire, reinforces the feeling of a remote wilderness setting. The Lakota Wolf Preserve, located on the campground, offers educational talks and excellent photo opportunities. Wolf Watches begin at 10:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., and last 60-75 minutes. Registration begins 1/2 hour before tour start times. Tours cost $15 for adults and $7 for kids up to 11 years old, plus tax.

To reserve a spot for one tent, send a check for $37.20 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 $38.58 via PayPal on the meetup.com page for this trip.

September 30-October 3, Camping Trip, Assateague Island National Seashore, Assateague MD
Camp behind the dunes on this beautiful barrier island off the coast of Maryland. Wonderful wild ponies share the island with people! We have reserved six oceanside campsites for the weekend. These are walk-in sites; vehicles can park near the site but campers will need to carry equipment on a boardwalk about 100 feet in to the dunes. Rent kayaks, canoes, and SUPs at the canoe/kayak rental lot, and paddle on the calm bay side of the island. This trip is a longer drive than most. Join us for the long weekend! Cold showers and chemical toilets in the national park, hot showers in the adjacent state park. $15 entrance fee per vehicle. To arrange carpooling, contact a trip leader ASAP.
