Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2000

Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2000

Just because the weather is cooler, you have no excuse to stop having fun. If you love food, laughter and good company, reserve a space on your Fall calendar for Campers' Group. We're planning some fun day and evening events and we're extending our outdoor activities with camping and cabin trips. Of course we'll still get our exercise by canoeing, day hiking, road/mountain biking with nature by our side.

To reserve a space on a weekend trip or a day event, call the leaders during the listed time period. If you need information earlier than the dates listed below, call David 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 it at the site. One year's membership costs $12 for an individual or $18 for a family ($8/individual or $12/family if you receive the newsletter by e-mail). Make your check payable to Campers' Group and mail it to David Levner, 63-36 98th Place #5J, Rego Park, NY 11374.

Sunday, September 24, Heckscher State Park, East Islip, NY
Observe wildlife while you munch on that freshly, grilled vegetable sandwich and homemade coleslaw. Work off that lunch with a short hike along one of the few woodland trails, or a sand-between-toes walk along the bay. If you get bored easily bring your bicycle and ride along miles of paved roads or just sit and watch deer feeding on leaves. Unfortunately it may be too late in the season to jump off the diving board into the olympic-size pool, but you can get you wet if you so desire. Bring food for the grill and table and your desired beverage. Responsible use of alcohol is permitted in park. NO CALLS BEFORE SEPTEMBER 17.
