It's Done!

Many thanks to the volunteers of the Cumberland Valley A.T. Club for their efforts in repainting the bunkhouse.

Where did all the green go?

Summer happenings at the Scott Farm

We are excited to announce that crew volunteers will be greeted by a spruced-up bunkhouse this fall. The Cumberland Valley A.T. Club, “home” club of the Scott Farm, has graciously offered to spearhead an effort to prep and paint the outside and has scheduled two work weekends to accomplish this in June.
After much needed siding and other exterior repairs by local carpenters Mike Davis and Bruce Dunlavy are completed, power washing and scraping will happen the weekend of 6-20/6-21. Weather permitting, painting will happen the weekend of 6-27/6-28.

Come back in July for photos of the finished product!

Spring ’09 Mid-Atlantic Happenings

Ted and Adam (light shirts) tuning up for the 2009 season outside Pearisburg, Virginia. Yes, that’s soil they’re digging in…..

We’re pleased to have 2008 Crew staff Crew Leader Ted Martello and Camp Coordinator Adam Daniel returning to Mid-Atlantic for the 2009 season after spending the summer in the south with the Konnarock Crew.

Mid-Atlantic weeks are filling up fast: currently weeks one, two, three and seven have reached capacity, so sign up for one of the remaining weeks before it’s too late!
