Assateague Island

6th Annual GOOMBAY BEACH CAMPING TRIP at ASSATEAGUE ISLAND, MD Join us for an exciting adventure as we embark on our Annual Beach Camping trip at the beautiful Assateague Island. Once we reach our destination we will set up camp, explore the island, play volleyball, cook dinner and enjoy an evening around an open campfire. Campers can enjoy the world famous "wild horses" at Assateague but we highly encourage you to not feed the horses. We will take a wildlife tour to see peregrine falcons, sandpipers, egrets, osprey, terns, gulls, waterfowl, marine-life, and (especially) wild ponies. Wild ponies and other wildlife are often encountered when campers explore the extensive inland waters of Assateague Island.
