Camping Washington Monument State Park with visit to Crystal Grottoes Caverns
July 27, 2018 - July 29, 2018
Please join us for our July camping trip to Washington Monument State Park July 27-29th. Choose to camp one or two nights using the sign ups below. Cost is as follows: Scouts $5/day, Adults $10/day, Siblings $5/day. Cost includes the camping site fee and meals. Sign up and payment for camping is due by Friday, July 20th. Please coordinate with Kim for payment. Check in time is anytime after 3pm Friday and we will be at the youth group site #2. Check out is by 1pm Sunday.
This state park is a worthwhile destination because it is home to the first monument dedicated to president Washington, is home to a small civil war museum, and sits along the Appalachian trail.
We are staying at primitive group site #2 which has three 25’x25′ concrete pads, 2 picnic tables, 1 fire ring with grill attachment and there is a restroom (flushing toilets and sinks, NO showers) shared with 2 other group sites nearby.
We will also be visiting the nearby Crystal Grottoes Cavern (optional) and have secured a group rate for a 4pm visit on Saturday. The group rates are adult tickets $15.00 and kid (12 and younger) $5.00. Note that the Pack will pay for the scouts to attend the cavern trip FREE but you will be responsible to pay for siblings/adults. This cave is only about a 4.5 mile drive from the park and will be a good way to cool off on Saturday afternoon. The tour is about 30 minutes long. Please note that the cavern only takes CASH as method of payment – no debit or credit cards so please come prepared with cash payment.
