Fifth Annual Fall Hike Day at Nature Camp Coming Up

Saturday, 15 October 2011

WHEN: 10:00 AM through the evening, RAIN OR SHINE. If the weather is really unfriendly, call Camp to be sure we’re still going hiking: 540-377-2491

WHERE: Nature Camp

WHAT: “Sunday Hikes” (We know they’re on Saturday, but like to call them by their traditional name) followed by dinner and relaxation. BRING YOUR LUNCH!

WHO: All friends of Nature Camp

COST: $20 per person over 10 years of age, or $50 maximum for a family. Those 10 and under free with a parent.

DETAILS: You and your friends and family are invited for a day at Nature Camp. Paul Cabe and Leigh Ann Beavers have come up with a great idea for a fundraiser to benefit the Nature Camp Foundation. You can help support Nature Camp while enjoying a fall day in the woods, great food, and fun people. Activities will include counselor-led hikes. Paul, Leigh Ann, and company will be busily preparing dinner while all the hikes are out, and we will gather for a feast in the Lillian Schilling Building around 6:00 P.M. after everyone returns to Camp. Current plans call for renovations to the kitchen this fall, so instead of the traditional turkey dinner, we will dine on Brunswick stew and other dishes. A vegetarian option will also be available. If possible, please bring plates, cups, and utensils with you (since we may not be able to wash dishes at Camp); we will plan to have some compostable plates, etc., on hand.

We will NOT be able to provide babysitting, so choose your hike accordingly if you have small children. Hikes will LEAVE CAMP at 10:30 AM, so please arrive in time to be ready by then. PLEASE BRING YOUR LUNCH, trail snacks, and plenty of water bottles with you.

PLEASE RSVP by October 8 to Flip Coulling at or 540-463-5308. Also please note if you are a vegetarian.

Bring checks, payable to the Nature Camp Foundation, with you
