2014 / Camping and Hiking
Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park
Cedar Grove Area
July 6th-8th, 2014
The camping trip for AvatarMeet 2014 will be from Sunday July 6th - Tuesday July 8th. This includes everyone that is interested in camping this year, no matter what kind of camping you are interested in (or indicated on your AvatarMeet.com profile). Sunday is designed to be a flexible arrival day to accommodate different flight times and carpools. It is a 4-5 hour drive to the campground from Los Angeles International Airport so we advise people to carpool if possible.
We have reserved a group campsite at the Canyon View Campground. We will be at Group Campsite D.* As an alternative, there is a lodge on site with rooms, and a store/restaurant. If you are planning to stay at the lodge we strongly recommend that you book a room as soon as possible as it is close to July 4th weekend and the rooms will fill up fast. If you are planning on camping with everyone at the group campsite you will be responsible for bringing your own sleeping gear tent/sleeping bag...ect More information on camp food plans and other logistical information will be announced soon.

More information about specific activities and other logistical details will be announced in the next month or two. Although most likely the activities will include day hikes, night hikes, ecological/environmental learning activities, carpool trips to see the famous trees/caves/museums of the national park, and much more. Suggestions/Discussion is welcome!
(If you are interested in backpacking, before the main camping trip there will be an informal one night backpacking trip on Friday night. Please email Aketuan if you are interested in joining.)
