May 2-8: Chapter Spring Campout

March 1, 2022

When: Monday May 2 through Sunday May 8. Where: Oconee State Park, Mountain Rest, SC

Who: All Chapter members and guests are invited! Bring a friend!

Details: The Chapter will use Site #91 in the Wooded Loop as the “gathering spot”. Meals will be taken there along with story telling around the campfire at night.

Campers should contact the Park and make their own campsite reservations. There are a variety of sites available, including sites with full hookups.

We will eat breakfast and supper together at Site #91. Lunch is on your own. If you sign up to cook a meal then all meals are free of charge to you. If you do not cook a meal, then pay the cook $5.00 for each meal that you eat. What a deal! The Chapter will provide stoves, paper plates, silverware, cups. Even if you don’t camp, come by to eat a meal or sit around the campfire!

We still need a volunteer to cook supper on Saturday night. We also need volunteers to cook breakfast on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday mornings.

Friday night will be a communal steak and baked potato supper. Everyone bring your own steak and potato. The Chapter will have the grill and hot charcoal ready for you to grill your own steak!

We need an accurate head count of who will be at the campout and what meals you will eat. This is needed for the cooks to adequately purchase and prepare the meals.

During the day you may explore the Park, hike to nearby scenic waterfalls, photograph spring wildflowers, visit nearby Cashiers, NC, or fish the many streams in the Tri-State area. Remember to carry the appropriate State fishing license!

To sign up to cook a meal or to say you are coming, contact the Campout Coordinator Terry Rivers.
