Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2003

Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2003

There's one word that sums up the past summer: wet! But the upside of all the rain we've gotten is that the forests are especially healthy and the fall foliage should be unusually brilliant. In addition, the temperatures will be cooler, the mosquitoes will be gone, and the winter constellations such as Orion will be visible again. See for yourself on our camping trips and day events this fall.

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.
