Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2006

Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 2006

We only have two more camping trips planned for this year. After Columbus Day Weekend, we metamorphose from weekend campers to day trippers and cabin weekenders.

For all of these trips, I expect cooler weather and less crowded parks. There’s never a bad time to be outdoors.

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.

September 15-17, Camping Trip, Burlingame State Park, Charlestown RI
Hurricanes stay away! The last time we camped in Burlingame, we got hit by the remnants of Hurricane Ivan. But the weather cleared up on Saturday afternoon, we dried out and had a great time. The park is near the ocean and criss-crossed with hiking trails. It is likely that the ocean will still be warm enough to swim in. We’ll be looking for rabbits, muskrat, mink, red fox, river otters, raccoons and weasels that make their homes in the park, and watch the birds at the 1000-acre Watchaug Pond. Hot showers and flush toilets. NO CALLS BEFORE SEPTEMBER 8.

In the rugged Hudson Highlands, Fahnestock is dotted with lakes and criss-crossed by hiking trails, including a section of the Appalachian Trail. Constitution Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary, run by the National Audubon Society, is nearby. Hot showers and flush toilets. NO CALLS BEFORE SEPTEMBER 30.

One of New York’s first airports and an important military base during World War II, Floyd Bennett Field is now operated by the National Park Service as a historic and natural site. We’ll walk along some of its sandy trails and see some of the abandoned fortifications. NO CALLS BEFORE OCTOBER 20.

Join us for a weekend at a comfortable youth hostel in Tyler State Park. You can hike, bicycle, or ride horses. Close to New Hope and Peddler’s Village.
