2015 Spring Campout

»Posted on Apr 6, 2015

WHERE: Bridge Creek Campground Group Site
WHEN: FRIDAY MAY 1st TO SUNDAY MAY 3rd
WHO: YOU! ALL GUESTS WELCOME
DETAILS: BOEALPS has rented the group campsite at Bridge Creek Campground on Icicle Creek Road in Leavenworth Friday and Saturday night.

FREE FOOD!
The club will be providing meat options and fixings for Saturday night.
Please bring a side or dessert to share for Saturday. Try to bring something a little creative so we don’t end up with a thousand bags of chips.
As always; BYOB.

CAMPFIRE
FIRE! We all like a big campfire. We’ve asked for 1 bundle per carload of people in the past and that has worked well. We can never have too much wood.

CLIMBING!
In addition to ICC & BCC outing this camp out is a great way to meet members new and old. This is a great opportunity to add a day of climbing and meet new partners.

RSVP
Please let us know you’re coming on our Facebook Event
