Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 1996-1997

Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 1996-1997

As I write these words, snow is already on the ground upstate. Are you going to stay in your den until the warm weather returns, or join us for outdoor fun?

We'll get warm and cozy too. Our January 25th party is in a heated apartment. See all the faces from the 1996 camping trips in person or in photos.

Looking to the future, it's important to be active and attend the annual meeting on February 2. Campers' Group is a cooperative, run by its members, and it needs your ideas.

To reserve a space on a trip, call its leaders Sunday to Wednesday of the previous week, before 10 PM. (For Frost Valley and High Peaks Base Camp, you can mail a check to reserve a space.) If you need information earlier than the date listed in the trip description, call David Levner at 718-897-1448.

To go on a camping or cabin trip, you must be a Campers' Group 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. (We accept checks made out to Campers' Group.) Send dues to David Levner, 63-36 98th Place, Apt. 5J, Rego Park, NY 11374.


Wednesday December 25, Christmas Dinner, Manhattan
Celebrate the holiday with friends. We'll meet for a Manhattan adventure and a meal in an ethnic restaurant to enjoy the spirit of the season. NO CALLS BEFORE DECEMBER 18.

Sunday February 2, Annual Meeting, Queens, NY
Meet to plan our agenda for the coming year. How many Summer camping trips should we have in 1997? What parks should we visit? How should we attract new members? Should the annual dues remain the same? We need your opinion! Members only.
