Family Camping Trip 2021

May 21-22 | Camp Orr | $5 per person


We will be heading to Jasper, AR for a fun overnighter on the Buffalo River.  There are a variety of hiking trails, waterfalls, mountain bike trails, and floating options in the area.  Elk can be seen in the fields at camp in the early morning and evening and Twin Falls is just a few hundred yards from the entrance to camp.  It truly is a beautiful area.  


The camp will have showers, water, and a place to pitch a tent.  Everything else needs to be brought.  RVs will not make it down the hill into camp and are not permitted.  Participants register with a family, families will be responsible for those they bring, and each family brings their own supplies.  Attending students must register with either their own family or the family who will be responsible for them.   


Participants will drive separately and arrive as is convenient for each family on Friday, May 21.  Participants should bring their own canoes, kayaks, bikes, etc.  None are available for rent by the camp; however concessionaires are in the area for families who would like to line up local canoe or kayak rental.  We will leave on Saturday as the activities are completed.  


Please let Daniel know if you are planning to go hiking, floating, or mountain biking so that we can organize the appropriate shuttling and maps as needed.
