Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2005

Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2005

We met many new friends around the campfire this summer. For the most part, the weather was hot and dry but now it's getting cooler. Soon the leaves will turn red and orange and yellow and gold and brown, and flutter to the ground. If you join us on our fall camping and day trips, you'll see these leaves while some of them are still on the trees.

Concerned about staying warm while you're outdoors? Then give me a call. By wearing the right clothing and staying active, you can enjoy camping and hiking in the fall and be completely comfortable.

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 trip or event. 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.

October 28-30, North/South Lake State Park, Haines Falls NY
For our last camping trip of 2005, we're returning to this very popular NY State Park.

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 OCTOBER 21.
