Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2004-2005

Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2004-2005

Snow is coming. If you're looking to do a little more than make snowmen in the park, join Campers' Group for some winter excursions. We're planning a near and far trip to x-country and downhill ski. At our March cabin trip, you can enjoy the comforts of home plus all the activities Mother Nature allows such as hiking, canoeing, kayaking and fishing.

If you are interested in discussing Campers' Group policy, attend our free annual brunch-meeting in March (Campers' Group members only).

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.
