Campers' Group Bulletin - Summer 1999

Campers' Group Bulletin - Summer 1999

The birds are doing it, the bees are doing it, even the mosquitoes are doing it. And we'll be camping as they do it.

Summer has returned. Cool off with us at the lake, and join us for a night hike to see a thousand stars glimmering. Waterfalls will be flowing, hot coals roasting ears of corn and a circle of campers watching wood consumed in the campfire. Summer has returned.

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.
