The club has reserved four sites around a field and we will have use of the field as we did last year. As in years past there will be a potluck dinner on Saturday night and the club will offer breakfast and coffee in the mornings. The cost for the weekend is $55.00 payable upon arriving at the campground or using the Paypal link on the registration page when available
Moose Brook is in the heart of the northern White Mountains. There are activities for all with plenty of mountain trails from easy to very strenuous. Kayaking is available at Lake Umbagog and the Androscoggin River. There are plenty of places to go mountain biking including the Presidential Rail Trail. The club hopes some members come forward to host an event.
Please do not arrive at the campground before 4:00 PM on Friday. A club member handling Friday night registration has to be at the campground office to greet Chiltern members. The campground staff will not be able to assist you in registering at the campground and directing you to a site. No exceptions please. The arrival time may change if a club member can volunteer to handle registrations earlier in the afternoon.
Directions, Moose Brook Campground is directly off of Route 2 in Gorham, NH. From downtown Gorham and the intersection of Route 2 and Route 16 take Route 2 west to Jimtown Road on your right to the campground office on your right.
Chiltern Mountain Club (CMC) was founded in 1978 by Sturgis Haskins. At the time he lived in Boston. He posted an ad in a local paper asking follow gay men and lesbians to join him for a hike up Mt. Wachusett in central Massachusetts. Since then, the club grew into New England's largest and only gay and lesbian outdoor recreation club.
Our trips page lists a variety of events, including hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, camping, skiing, and many other outdoor-related activities club members are leading. Chiltern events are open to members and non-members alike, and activities range anywhere from an easy garden walk to a strenuous backpacking trip in the White Mountains. We welcome people of all abilities and backgrounds, so there's no need to feel intimidated if you're new to an activity.
Chiltern is an all-volunteer group that strives to create a relaxed environment for people to experience the outdoors together and bond as a community.
