Friday, October 21 to Sunday, October 23, 2011: Campout at Boy Scout Camp
General info for all hikes and walks: Hikes and walks
are $5 for members, and $10 for non-members (become
a member). Unless otherwise noted, the pace for hikes is moderate,
lasting 3-5 hours, covering 3-5 miles, the terrain is hilly, footing is
sometimes uneven, and we follow trails and possibly paved or dirt roads
. Walks are easier and shorter than hikes, and usually follow paved or
dirt roads, no trails. The guide may periodically stop and talk along
the way. Bring sturdy, comfortable walking or hiking shoes, water, snack,
bug spray, rain poncho, and camera. Shorts or long pants are OK. For day
hikes, bring a hat and sun block. For night hikes, bring a small flashlight.
There are usually about 20 people. We depart about 30 minutes after the
posted start time. For some hikes, we will meet at the indicated location,
then drive a short distance to the hike location.
Specific info for this hike: This is two nights of camping at the Boy Scout Camp. You must bring your own tent, sleeping bag, food, drinks, flashlight, cooking utensils, toilet paper (not Charmin, it clogs the pipes) and normal camping stuff. At the campsite, there are showers, restroom, refrigerator, freezer, grill, and pavilion. The cost is $10 per person/per night. No alcoholic beverages allowed. There is a beach to enjoy and we will be doing other activities while there. The exact start and end times will be announced later.
Meet at the Boy Scout Camp.
From Christiansted, go east on East End Rd./Route 82 for 1 mile.
- Turn right onto Lowry Hill Rd./Route 62 and go for about 2.5 miles. (The road becomes Southside Rd./Route 62, and you will end up at the south shore.)
- Around the place where Southside Rd./Route 62 makes a sharp right turn to the west, look for the Boy Scout Camp on the left.
