Camping trip info:
We at ICAF-Bmore are having our annual camping trip in July and you're
invited. If you'd like to go this year assist us by helping us to choose
between two campsite destinations. Details below....
Our 2nd annual Harriet Tubman camping trip is scheduled for July 25 thru 27.
We are very excited about this opportunity to travel out to the semi-wild
blue yonder and bond as a group. Last year's retreat was a blast including
basking snakes, a rockin' berimbau jam session & Cheffy's own dutch oven
campfire peach cobbler! This year we are considering two very exciting
options ('course I'm partial to one):
1. whitewater rafting and mountain terrain in Pennsylvania (if you've never
been rafting it is exhilirating!)
2. beach camping & night hiking in Delaware
Difficult choice, right? These are both primitive sites meaning you bring a
tent. Cabins are available but you will have to reserve them on your.
Eat a piece of seasonal, local fruit.
These are both "primitive" campsites that means a clearing for your tent.
There is a bath house at both campgrounds. Which means you can shower. No
electricity. You may reserve a cabin if you so choose but they are more
expensive. As well as other lodging options for those who ballin' like that.
Of course the white water rafting is going to bump up the PA option.
Rough estimates follow (drum roll please):
1. Weekend Camping at Cape Henelopen, DE includes 4 meals: $50 per adult.
$20 per child
2. Weekend Camping at Ohiopyle Sate Park, PA includes 4-5 meals and a white
water rafting adventure on the Youghiogheny River for adults & children.
Numerous mountain trails. Very close proximity to the Frank Lloyd Wright
designed home entitled "Falling Water" (the house is built into a clif
overhanging a waterfall! It's so beast!):
Check out http://www.laurelhighlands.com/
$50 per adult
$120 per rafting adult (anyone over age 12) Lower Yough: Class 2-3 rapids
$80 per rafting child (anyone under age 12) Middle Yough: Class 1-2 rapids
$20 per non-rafting child
Again, to be clear these are approximates. We can get some group discounts.
Gasoline is gonna be a factor to consider, of course. So, if you've ever
wanted to go whitewater rafting this is the time & for added bonus we do it
in the name of liberation, survival, freedom, CAPOEIRA! We will organize
some efforts to raise funds to defray or even cover the costs. My personal
opinion is that the PA trip would be much more fruitful. They are more or
less equal drive time apart by the way.
I believe the group is working on chosing a site, but if you will be in the area (its a pretty big area, Maryland-Delware-Pennsylvania-DC-Virginia.. and many other states. Come on, the drive will be worth it), you can contact the FICA-Baltimore group at: info (at) baltimorecapoeira (dot) org.
It's going to be fun!
