An open invitation to all travelers with a story to tell or an ear to listen. I am hosting a camp in the Springbank area of Calgary.
Sept 25th (4pm) , 2010 - First annual (?) Calgary HU BYO everything, Meeting and Camp.
Didn’t make it to the Nakusp meeting? Or perhaps you did and just don’t want to give up on summer?!
An evening and morning of hanging out and getting to know some fellow travelers:
Located on a very special farm just outside Calgary city limits in Springbank. On a piece of property of over 2000 acres I will be hosting a camp for everyone that would like to attend. Located in the forest with the Elbow River just a couple minutes walk away I have a site available that I am sure will not disappoint any travelers that would like to attend. Ok, there won’t be any presentations but I can offer a firepitt, firewood, plenty of room for camping with a rustic outhouse and should the weather turn inclement we have a couple buildings that we can gather in for shelter.
n your own stove
n I will provide a BBQ with charcoal
n An ice chest for your “refreshments”.
You can camp in the shade of the trees (it will be nice by the time Sept comes around right?!) or out in the open. There is room for Frisbee so bring the kids, or the kid in you. As I am sure that it will be a hot weekend you may want a quick dip in the river.
On the west side of Calgary, South west of Lower Springbank Rd and on the North side of the Elbow River (the south side of the river has Elbow Valley Estates and Stonepine). Follow either Horizon View Rd or 17th Ave SW this becomes Township RD 242 (past Eden Brook Memorial Gardens) and into Colpitts Ranches on a gravel road. Once in the river valley and at the farm site, follow signs that will take you past the old Dairy Barn (largest building) and across the pasture into the treed area where the river and the Old Girl Scouts (Batuk) camp is located.
