When: September 23-25.

Where: We will have a pre-trip "Camping 101" meeting on Monday, September 19 at 6:00pm in Mendenhall Lab 115. This meeting is open to all members to come and learn the basics of camping, and mandatory for those going on the trip. Here we will also discuss the meeting times for trip departure.

Why: Because nature is pretty neat.

Further Important things to Note:

  • The cost of this trip will be $40. This will cover any gear you may need that we will rent, transportation, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday, breakfast on Sunday, and the price of staying at the campsite.
  • Payment must be made by Wednesday, September 21 to go on the trip. No exceptions.
  • You must have attended at least one day trip with us in the past to go on this trip.
  • Remember that we are a tobacco-free club, and will not tolerate tobacco of any kind on this trip.
  • As most of our trips are, this is first come first serve. You must RSVP at AND receive a confirmation email to attend the trip. Each person attending must RSVP individually.
  • Once again, the pre-trip meeting is mandatory to attend for those who received a confirmation email and is open to all parks and rec members.

This is going to be a really fun trip so get excited!
