Spring Break 2018 Camping Trip – St. Catherine’s Island @ Coastal Georgia
Apr 2 @ 7:30 am – Apr 4 @ 4:00 pm
Spring break 2018 to Saint Catherine’s Island off the coast of Georgia. This undeveloped island has many unique features, including antebellum ruins, miles of undeveloped beaches, forest trails, and even Lemur colonies! Read more about it here (http://www.stcatherinesisland.org/). We will be taken to the island by boat and hike approximately 1 mile to our campsite on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. During the day, we will take day hikes around the island to explore. We do not anticipate any age or rank restrictions on this camp-out except the ability to carry personal gear, including tent, ground cloth, etc., 1 mile to the campsite. While this island is not as undeveloped as Cumberland Island, it is much more accessible and should prove to be a fascinating trip. Please consider joining us along with your scout if you would like. Tentative Specifics: Depart: MONDAY April 2, 2018, from scout hut at approximately 7:30 AM Return: WEDNESDAY April 4, 2018, at approximately 4:00 PM COST: TBD, but we are visiting the island free-of-charge, so the cost will be primarily for transportation and food, anticipating $40-$50.
