NOTE: Attendee size limit is determined by how many tents and vehicles we bring. So if you have a camping tent or vehicle, let us know in the comments below.
So, it has come to our attention that many of you want to not only hike but also Camp! Well we got news for you!
We have decided to choose an excellent location to not only hike to, but also camp! Come join us on our adventure as we go hike and camp for 2 days and 1 night at Round Valley Reservoir!
However before we can make reservations, we need to get a basic head count on how many of you CAN make it to a camping trip.
Requirements to come...
$25 per person
A backpack to hold your supplies.
At least one water bottle. (We will be near a water pump source, but you need at least one container to hold your water or other drinks in, or a cup.)
1 Toilet paper roll.
Any snacks that you like, food to be cooked over the camp fire.
1 blanket or sleeping bag
1 flash light
Utensils and food wares
The Round Valley Reservation offers a multitude of activities that we hope that you all attending will enjoy with us!
They have various nature trails that we can hike, so bring your most comfortable shoes. They even have a beach water front to enjoy the lake! So bring out those bathing suits, towels and sun block to have good time at the beach!
This camping trip will require you to hold a FULL backpack and hike 3 to 6 miles TO the campsite and back! It is strongly suggested that you prepare for this long hike in advance.
To save on the time of travel and the costs we require that attending members to make their ways out to the Elizabeth Train Station (depicted on Google map). Make sure that you arrive No Later than 8AM! We are picking up people from the station to take everyone together to the Reservation.
If you can't get out the city that early, Rye has offered his home and bed for those wishing to sleep over the night before so they are able to attend. Please PM him in advance to make arrangements :)
