Registration: Chiltern Spring Jamboree at Townshend, Vermont (05-26-2017 03:00 pm - 05-29-2017 12:00 pm)

Chiltern Spring Jamboree at Townshend State Park, Vermont

Friday to Monday, May 26th to 29th

We are going to Townshend State Forest in Townshend, Vermont on Memorial Weekend.  The club held jamborees at this beautiful park several times in the 1990s.  We have reserved five sites – 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.  Each site can have up to 6 people on it, and one site will be for the common area.  Three continental breakfasts will be included in the package.  There will be a pot-luck dinner on Saturday night and often groups go out to dinner on Sunday night or stay and have your own barbeque.  Pets are permitted.

   If you prefer not to camp, there is a Frog Meadow, a gay B&B in Newfane, south of Townshend..

 

  Bring everything you will need for tent camping, lunches and sporting gear. Don’t forget flashlights, sunblock, etc.   For bikers, there are many covered bridges in the region, as well as mountain biking and hiking trails at nearby Grafton Ponds Outdoor Center.  The Green Mountains are nearby for a more strenuous hike; and a few miles south is the Rock River swimming area.

  The cost is $35 per person.  Payable at the event. (we are hoping to have a paypal link up soon to make payment easier) If you have any questions, contact your host, Steve Pinkham 617-07-0743 hikercmc@yahoo.com

 

Directions:  From Boston, take Route 2 west to Route 91, then Route 91 north to Brattleboro.  Take Ext 2 onto VT 9 to Western Avenue, heading west toward Brattleboro.  Take VT 30 North 29 miles to State Forest Road in Townshend.   Set your GPS for 2755 State Forest Road.
