Old Firsters are going camping…please join us

Where: French Creek State Park (south of Reading PA)

Info: French Creek is located 55 miles northwest of Old First. The Park has swimming, hiking, fishing, boating and playgrounds. It is adjacent to the Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site which we plan to visit during our stay. Based on survey responses, we have rented one Yurt which sleeps 4 people (if someone with an ADA disability is needed, we will rent a second Yurt, but there are campsites available and some of them allow pets.  

The weekend will include fellowship time, shared meals and free time to enjoy the many wonders of creation. For those who want to attend but have no equipment… don’t worry, we can secure some for you.
