Volunteers needed to make Coffee!

Volunteers needed for coffee commitment for each of the big meetings. All you have to do is bring the committee the water and transport the coffee and supplies to/from the meeting. The committee will provide everything and even brew the coffee. Please let a committee member know when you check in if you can help!

About the trip:

TheCampingTrip is a clean and sober camping trip which is open to our fellowships and our families.  The following list of meetings is just a start.  If you want to host a pick-up meeting, organize a hike, or have a jam session, etc. write it on the white board at the check-in table. It’s your trip, it’s up to you to make the best of it!

Camp Charles Campground hosts a lot of activities for the kids (like face painting and candy bingo) as well as an abundance of amenities.  There is a stocked fishing pond (no license required), a swimming pool, a game room, showers up front, horseshoes, volleyball, basketball, a playground and much more.

Nearby are many amazing sites such as: Columcille Megalith Park, The Appalachian Trail, Minsi LakeBear Swamp Archery Complexwaterfall hikes, the Delaware Water GapMount MinsiMount TammanyVan Campens Glen waterfall, and of course there’s always an adventure to be had at Walmart.

If you have any suggestions for TheCampingTrip, let us know.  Although we organize the sites & the trip, it is YOUR trip.

Your feedback is crucial!!!

Speed Limit is 5 mph THROUGHOUT the campground.!

There are a lot of kids running around.  Please, keep the speed down THROUGHOUT the campground.
Space – We have a large area as our space. Although the sites are numbered, they are (for the purposes of our trip) all one site.  Please set up responsibly and with respect to others and do not camp where signs are posted saying “No camping beyond this point”

Firewood will be delivered throughout the weekend.

You do not need to get all your wood for the weekend the first night. Please DO NOT BOGART THE FIREWOOD.  Grab what you need to start so people arriving later have wood.  Although a small portion of your money goes toward firewood, it does not create an endless supply. If yoneed large fires all day & night, you can purchase additional firewood thru the camp store.

Tables are provided to us for our group (seats 8).
Like the firewood, they’re not an endless supply.  We ask if you need a table, take
it, but we also ask that if you can, share it. If you are a group of 2 or 3 try
to share with others near you.  Many tables are made of plastic and will
melt if you try to cook on them or have them near the fire.  Please DO NOT
BOGART THE TABLES.

 

Porta Potties are emptied and cleaned daily during the weekend.
No trash goes in the toilet. This includes cups, garbage and feminine hygiene products. They’ll clog the pump & burn out the motor.
No Pump, No Dump!!!

ALL Dogs must be keep on a leash.
While on the property, all dogs must be leashed. This includes small dogs & friendly dogs who wouldn’t harm a soul.  Remember to clean up after your dog.

Quiet Time is from 11pm–8am.
Please be respectful to your neighbors. Sound carries in the woods.  If you do have a noisy neighbor, approach them respectfully and they will usually abide. If not,
please don’t wake up the committee to complain, try calling your sponsor.

Fireworks
Fireworks are sold readily to non-PA residents. They are strictly prohibited on the campground. If you are caught setting off fireworks, the campground will have you leave immediately and without a refund.

Trees are not to be cut down
Nor are down trees to be harvested. The farmer who owns this land we camp on relies upon the down trees for his own personal use.

End of the trip 
Please clean your site, bag your trash and put it by the road.  Your fire must be
fully extinguished before you leave.  Not only is it unsafe, but
we will be fined for fires left burning, which will raise the cost of the trip.

The Camping Trip Committee

We are grateful to have the opportunity to be of service. We welcome others who would also like to join the committee or find other ways to be of service during the trip weekends by hosting a meeting, making coffee, or other opportunities. Thank you for allowing us to be of service! Brian, Cathy, Jess and Rich
