4th Annual Fall Hike Day – October 16, 2010

Paul Cabe, Leigh Ann Beavers, and Chris Chamberlin have once again generously and graciously agreed to provide a turkey dinner with all the trimmings (a vegetarian option will be available) to follow a day of hiking the ridges and valleys around Nature Camp. For the past three autumns, this event has drawn a delightfully broad cross?section of the Nature Camp family — current and former campers, counselors, parents, and friends — together for a memorable time of recreation, fellowship, and enjoyment of the season’s changing palette — and to raise funds for the Nature Camp Foundation.

We will gather at camp at 10:00 AM and depart by 10:30; there will be several hikes of varying difficulty and length from which to choose. Bring your own lunch, snacks, water, etc. (squishies not provided). The cost is $20 per person, or $50 maximum per family; children 10 and under with a parent may eat for free. Please bring checks made payable to the Nature Camp Foundation.

To reserve a space (and to request vegetarian fare) please e?mail director Flip Coulling at or call (540) 460?7897 by October 10. Note that no baby-sitting service will be available during the hikes.

In the event of inclement or uncertain weather, call Flip or camp (540) 377?2491 the morning of October 16 to see if hikes are still on (dinner will be in any event).

We hope to see many of you there!
