U.S. 441, Charleston, NC
Hostelling International-USA announces their first S'more Peace weekend, a world peace awareness event taking place from Friday, October 4th through Sunday, October 6th.
Join Dawn Boudreaux and Wyndham Manning, HI-USA Regional Engagement Managers, in nature's version of a hostel's "common room" between the South Central and South East Regions...the Great Smoky Mountain National Park!
Camp, hike, and make delicious s'mores while sharing stories of peaceful adventures with other travel and hostelling enthusiasts. We're offering an outdoor alternative to the Sleep for Peace initiative taking place at HI-USA's hostels nationwide (click here for more details: http://www.hiusa.org/sleep).
World peace through travel!
Help someone else discover the joys of travel. $1 from your overnight donation of $10+ will go towards a scholarship fund for first time travelers.
Limited availability -- please register soon with your suggested $10+ donation via Eventbrite: https://smorepeace.eventbrite.com/
We hope to see you in the Smokys soon!
