Campers' Group Bulletin - Spring 2006

Campers' Group Bulletin - Spring 2006

It will soon be spring. It already feels like spring. Then again, it felt like spring all winter.

Now is the time to take the tent out of the closet, wash the old sleeping bag, waterproof your boots, and reconnect with your camping buddies. During our March and April trips, you’ll have the choice of camping or staying in a cabin. In May and June, you won’t need those four walls.

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.

March 17-19, Camping/Cabin Trip, Tohickon Valley Park, Point Pleasant PA
Enjoy the comforts of a warm and cozy cabin by the flowing Tohickon Valley Creek, or rough it in your tent. Over the weekend, water will be released from an upstream dam enlarging the creek and making it a nirvana for kayakers. Our cabin has a kitchen, bathroom, shower and wood-burning fireplace, and beds for eight people. Bring your own food, pots, pans, and utensils and blankets and linens. Flush toilets and hot showers. NO CALLS BEFORE MARCH 10.

April 14-16, Camping/Cabin Trip, Camp Glen Gray, Oakland NJ
Again you have the choice to stay in a cabin or camp out. The cabin has bunk rooms that for eight people, a common area and bathrooms, but we’ll have to cook outdoors. The park is in the midst of the Ramapo Mountains, and several hiking trails go through it. Flush toilets and hot showers if the water is turned on. NO CALLS BEFORE APRIL 7.

Sunday April 30, Day Hike, The Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn NY
Before there were Central and Prospect Parks, New Yorkers had their weekend picnics at Green-Wood Cemetery. Today it’s an arboretum, a wildlife sanctuary, a sculpture garden, and many famous people are buried there. Carol will lead us on a walk and teach us a little about the history. NO CALLS BEFORE APRIL 22.
