Adirondack Camping Trip, July 2016

Dear Frassati members and friends,

We have been kindly invited by the Frassati Fellowship of Northeast Ohio to join them, as well as other Frassati and Catholic young adult groups, this July for an exciting camping trip to the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York.

On this trip, there will be opportunities for several different types of adventurous activities and chances to form deeper friendships with those Frassati members you already know as well as chances to meet new like-minded people from other Catholic groups.

Please RSVP as soon as possible, according to the details below. We sincerely hope to enjoy your company as we go on this adventure together!

What you need to know:

-Cost of the trip: $15 per person. (Additional expenses include contributing to gas money, money for food on travel days, and rental fees for watercraft, if you wish.)

-Payment due: July 11, 2016, when we depart from the campgrounds (pay to Columbus Frassati Society)

-FYI: You will need to provide your own camping gear and cookware (people of the same gender as one another may share a tent, if needed)

The Whens, Wheres, and Whats:

About the Adirondak Region:
Spanning more than six million acres, the Adirondack Region is the largest park in the lower 48. Like a patchwork quilt, the Adirondacks are made up of seven distinct regional destinations, each offering their own brand of Adirondack adventure. From the Adirondack Lakes Region with more than 600 bodies of navigable water, to the extensive hiking trails of the High Peaks Wilderness in the Lake Placid Region – discover an area as diverse in geography as it is in activities and events.

God bless,
