Camping Tips

10388069_773618542699922_5289766652931762563_nOn November 7-9, 2014, NORML UCF will be hosting a Fall Camping Trip at Potts Preserve! A $15 fee for members or $30 fee for nonmembers is required in order to secure your spot; this fee will cover park entry and 4 meals (the money will be refunded to you if you drive). This trip wouldn’t be possible without those who have volunteered to drive, so make sure to have extra cash to give to your friends who are heading the caravan to Potts Preserve. Thursday, November 6 will be the last day to pay, so if you haven’t already, sign up a.s.a.p.! If you show up and have not paid, you will not be allowed to enter the campsite, so be sure to turn in your money on time!

This will be primitive camping. Try to pack light and be sure to make arrangements to arrive in the daytime (it will be easier to guide you to the campsite in daylight).
