At Dreyland Camp, thanks to our friends at John Burroughs School!
For those new to this event or location, Dreyland is a beautiful wilderness camp featuring primitive (no electric) bunkhouses, a showerhouse with flush toilets and a large mess hall lodge with full kitchen and refrigeration. The property has easy access to Sinking Creek, one of the most pristine creeks I’ve seen, a couple of miles above it’s confluence with the Current River.

Schedule & What to Bring

The Weekend Agenda is always fairly loose but here is the typical schedule:

  • Friday – the Camp will be open in the early afternoon. Everyone is on their own as far as meals go Friday. Remember, there is plenty of refrigeration and kitchen space/equipment. What there is not much of is nearby restaurants or markets. Salem is the best bet and it is about 30-40 minutes away.
  • Saturday- we will float an as yet undetermined river for an as yet undetermined distance and an undetermined time. This decision is usually made early Saturday morning.  After the float, we will feast. The club will provide the meat, the rest will be pot luck so please bring a large dish to share.
  • Sunday- Some folks will float, others will hike, many will head home. If you are unfamiliar with the area and want to extend your trip, ask one of us for a recommendation. There is a lot to do and see in immediate area.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP via [email protected] or respond to the post on the message board.
