Two nights of camping (Nov. 8 - 9) topped off with a visit to the 33rd Annual Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Festival (Nov. 10). Take a step back in time to learn about the Men of the Civilian Conservation Corps and the amazing things they did for the National and State Park’s Service.
Join us camping Friday and Saturday night. Friday night will be a relaxing time sitting around the fire telling trail stories, swapping camp recipes, or whatever comes to mind!
Group activities for Saturday and Sunday will be posted on Meetup as separate events. FTA Activity Leaders, please feel free to organize and post group activities for Saturday and Sunday.
Sunday enjoy a day at the 33rd Annual Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Festival at Highlands Hammock State Park.
