Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 1997

Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 1997

It was a glorious Summer: sunny days, little rain, and starry clear nights. But the camping season doesn't end on Labor Day. We'll camp by the Delaware in late September, in the New Jersey Pine Barrens for Columbus Day and upstate New York in late October to see the leaves at their most colorful.

We're also planning events in New York City such as a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge followed by lunch in Chinatown, a bird-watching walk in Pelham Bay Park in October and a Chinese banquet in November.

To reserve space on a trip or day event, call the leaders between Sunday and Wednesday of the previous week, before 10 PM. If you need information earlier than that, call David Levner 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 at the site. One year's membership costs $12 for an individual or $18 for a family ($8 or $12 if you receive the newsletter by e-mail). Make out your check to Campers' Group and send it to David Levner, 63-36 98th Place, Apt. 5J, Rego Park, NY 11374.
