Campers' Group Bulletin - Summer 2002

It's summer again! Have you camped yet this year? We'll make it easy for you to go camping with friends--just call one of the leaders for the trips listed below. You can pitch your tent by the Hudson River (Croton Point), by the Atlantic Ocean (Fire Island), in the New Jersey Pine Barrens (Wharton), or in the Appalachian Mountains (High Point and North Lake).

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 weekend. 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).
