Save the date! 2021 Fall Hike day is ON for October 23, 2021

Save the date! The Nature Camp Foundation will be hosting (hopefully) another Almost-Annual Fall Hike Day on Saturday, October 23rd, 2021. This event is a fundraiser for NCF and a much-needed opportunity for all members of the Nature Camp community to gather in our favorite valley and explore the sur-rounding mountains together, reconvening for a turkey dinner to swap stories of all their adventures. We’ll be extremely mindful of COVID safety and plan to implement some new protocols to this event to ensure we can all leave feeling happier and healthier than when we came. Mark your calendars and check social media for details as we get closer to the date.

Fall Hike Days details!

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

DETAILS: You and your friends and family are invited for a day at Nature Camp. Paul Cabe and Leigh Ann Beavers are once again devoting their time, talent, and tithe to a wonderful fundraiser to benefit the Nature Camp Foundation, which provides generous and invaluable financial and other assistance to Nature Camp. 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 (and possibly in-Camp activities for those who prefer to remain more sedentary). Paul, Leigh Ann, and company will be busily preparing dinner while all the hikes are out, so you can come enjoy a turkey dinner after your hike (vegetarian and vegan options will be available). We will NOT be able to provide babysitting, so choose your hike accordingly if you have small children. All minors must be accompanied and supervised by an adult that can legally sign the NCF waiver on behalf of the minor.Hikes will LEAVE CAMP by 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.
