Whacky Winter Whiteout Weekend

Whacky - This artwork by Scout Gavin M.

Saturday, February 18 -
Monday, February 20, 2012
Warrensburg and Pottersville, NY

For this trip, we will travel to Upstate New York, camping in two small cabins at Skye Farm Camp in Warrensburg, NY from that Saturday to Monday and making a day trip to Natural Stone Bridge & Caves Park in Pottersville, NY that Sunday for caving. The PLC's original idea was that we would spend the rest of the time at the camp in such winter activities as building snow forts, having snowball fights and sledding and that we would go snow shoeing at the caves park. Conditions, however, likely will not include any snow on the ground. Instead, the troop will plan a weekend of other fun activities.

Each cabin sleeps up to eight people. There likely is space for tent camping as well, however, we anticipate a limit of 15 participants based on space in the vehicles.

Cooking is permitted indoors and outdoors, and there is a fire ring, so put your chef hats on!

See our Camping page for information on gear and packing.
