How to Get there?

Here is a map containing the campground and many of the things we’re going to do.

Click on the link with the green tent icon 2014-05-03_2106 , then click Directions to get exact driving directions from your home.

How much will it cost?

Right now, every family will pay $42 for all three days.  If we get more/less the price will go down/up.   Click here to see a full list of who is coming.

Don’t worry about paying me now; we can settle up at the campsite.

What to Bring

It’s car camping, so the usual (tents/sleeping bags/chairs/etc.) is required. See my handy checklist if you’d like to spark some ideas on what you should bring.

There is no potable water at the campground but there is available close, so bring jugs (lots of jugs) to store it.

Bring sports equipment, frisbees, etc.  Bring glow sticks and other night time stuff.

Meals: Breakfasts and Dinners

We’ll do meals potluck style.  Just plan for meals for your family and extra if you want to share. We can coordinate in real time if we want to share some of the responsibilities.

We’ll do Breakfasts around 7 AM and Dinners around 6 PM.

Lunches/snacks should be done on your own.
