Trip Details

FRIDAY

While Saturday is the main activity day, about 1/2 of us drive up on Friday to schmooze, eat, and camp that night.

Head north when you can and either eat on the way or join us for dogs/burgers at 6:30pm. Get to the campsite before dark to make pitching your tent easier.

SATURDAY

For Friday-night campers, we’ll have coffee, bagels, pancakes, juice, and donuts for breakfast. Mmmmmmmmmmmm !

At 10:00am folks will start getting ready to head off to their Saturday activity of choice. This year, we are formally organizing these options:

- Pemigiwasset River Kayak/Canoe Trip - more info

- Welch-Dickey Mountains Hiking Trip - more info

If you arrive Saturday AM and plan to pitch your tent prior to the trips, try to arrive at the campsite by 9AM.

If neither of these seem up your alley, you may also simply “hang out” around the campsite… walk, mountain bike, and snooze. For a point of reference - a large majority of the group does the River Trip every year!

WE DO NOT PROVIDE SATURDAY LUNCH>>>THAT IS THE PARENT'S JOB!

After the canoe and hiking trips, we’ll head back to camp to enjoy the terrific views, tell tall tales, laze about the site, play kickball, and watch Fisher’s Fantastic Foodies set up/prepare a gourmet dinner. Always good for laughs … guaranteed freshest road kill in all NH!!

We’ll provide burgers (vegetarian available), dogs and mac-n-cheese for the kids. Adults get the leftovers, as well as steak tips, and swordfish!

After dinner, we’ll cook S’mores, watch the stars, play flashlight tag, keep the campfires stoked, tell taller tales, slap mosquitoes, and chill out ‘til bedtime.

SUNDAY

Again, we provide a delicious and utterly non-nutritious mix of bagels, pancakes, juice, donuts, and more coffee. Then, its time to pack up your gear, load the SUVs, and depart…

But not until … WE ALL HELP CLEAN UP the campsite. The Campout has earned an excellent reputation for leaving our site in better shape then when we arrive because we clean up so well. KEEP THE STREAK ALIVE!
