Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2002

Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2002

After a hot, hot summer, the cooler days of fall will be a relief. The bugs will be gone, the leaves will turn a thousand colors, and we'll all huddle around the campfire for warmth and companionship at night. Best of all, most of the summer's campers will have packed away their tents leaving the campgrounds uncrowded for us.

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. You can mail us your dues or pay it at the weekend. 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. To reserve a space on our cabin trips, you should also mail your check to this address.

Some of the trails are rugged and require endurance, but you will be rewarded with spectacular views. One of these trails, the Escarpment Trail goes to Kaaterskill Falls. Flush toilets and hot showers. NO CALLS BEFORE SEPTEMBER 13.
