2017 ANNUAL S.A.A. CAMPING TRIP ON SEPTEMBER 8, 9, 10TH

Join us for a weekend of fellowship in the beautiful central Sierras. Bring your tent and sleeping bag, and enjoy hiking in forest, swimming, boating, stargazing and an amazing recovery community. There will be an opportunity to attend workshops under the pines and attend morning and night meetings around a large campfire. It is a great opportunity to meet and share recovery with other people and develop new friendships in the program.

Robust meals are provided as a part of camping experience. Breakfast will be served in the crisp clear morning air with the smell of campfires, bacon and sausage cooking, lunch is a build your own smorgasbord, and dinner is served by candle light under a sky filled with stars. If you have specific dietary considerations the meals will be tailored to your needs

In the spirit of being in service, each camper will be assigned to a food team and share in the preparation and cleanup of a meal. Also we will be carpooling as much as possible, because of the limited parking availability. Our Ride Coordinator will help you pair up with a ride; just let us know your needs when you register.

On line registration is scheduled to open on August 5, 2017. Registration can be made by check with a registration form available on this website or at your local meeting. You can also register on line using the SAA camping web site (bit.ly/2017SAACamping) and paying through PayPal. An extra $1.80 will be added to the fee for the use of the PayPal services. Registration will close Friday night September 1, 2017. Unfortunately, if you have to cancel your reservation after Sep. 1, refunds will not be available. A conformation letter, facility description and overview, a camping essentials check list, and a map and directions to the camp site will be emailed to you upon registration.

The cost of the weekend is $80.00 for three days and two nights of camping. This will include payment for the camping site and all of the meals at the campout. A limited number of scholarships are available that will reduce the registration to $40.00. Please request the scholarship with your registration application.

The campsite is restricted to a maximum capacity of 25 campers so register early.

This event is restricted to S.A.A. members only.

If you bring a pet, Forest Service campground regulations require that your pet be leashed, at all times, while in the campground area.

All funds over and above the cost of the camping event will be donated to the International Service Organization of S.A.A.

The Bay Area SAA fellowship is working hard to support the International Convention

It will be THREE days of recovery (speakers, workshops, meetings).
To support the convention, keep registration costs low, and make it an excellent experience for us, we collectively need to provide service and financial support for the Convention. The Convention Committee and Intergroup are asking each meeting to please 'pass the hat' one extra time each month from now through May 2018. Thanks to all who have provide support already: we have raised over $10,000 but we need to raise more.

Some of our fellows have offered $3,500 in matching grants that will be contributed if we reach at least $3500 through this fundraising effort. That money will be contributed to this Convention Fundraising effort if our meetings can collect at least that amount by the end of May 2018. Please help. Any amount is acceptable, $2 is suggested. We hope all meetings will cooperate with this important effort: it has been a vital part of the fundraising for recent SAA conventions.

Please send proceeds in an envelope addressed to 'Convention' c/o Howard C, 217 Dwight Road, Burlingame, CA, 94010. Checks should be made out to ISO of SAA with a note 'Convention'. Please send a check (or if you prefer, you can give cash to Howard C). Please send a check in December and in April if possible so we know how we are doing!

If you would like to help by making a 'matching grant' commitment, please contact Howard C at jhowardc@outlook.com
