Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 1999

Campers' Group Bulletin - Fall 1999

Technically Summer is over. But the weather is still warm and the parks are less crowded. We've planned camping trips through the middle of November this year in anticipation of a warm Fall.

We've also scheduled day events and weekend cabin trips. Hopefully, there's something for everybody. To get an event listed in the Winter schedule, please call Denise or David.

To reserve a space on a weekend trip or day event, call the leaders no earlier than seven days before the start of the trip, and not later than 10 P.M. If you need a ride or one of the Campers' Group tents, please call early. For information earlier than seven days before the trip, 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.
