Trailblazers Camping
Satruday 9/16/17 beginning approximately at 5 pm
Greene Valley Forest Preserve - West Area Parking Lot, Thunderbird Road Bolingbrook, IL 60440

- Trailblazers will convene at the campsite at approximately 5:00 pm on Saturday (time dependent on when the canoeing finishes).
- Dinner will be whenever people arrive and or want.  Just a reminder to bring your own food and cooking equipment/utensils.
- It is highly recommend to bring at least one gallon of water from home (the well water there is nasty).
- No need to bring firewood, it is provided by the forest preserve.
- The site is tent only if you are spending the night.
- Even though it has been dry, bug spray is always a good idea back in the woods.
- We are at campsite #8 and there is parking near the campsite.  Use the park entrance on 79th street and follow to the paved parking lot.  On the way to the Ranger House at the far end of the parking lot there is a gravel road that you can use to drive to site #8 (stay to the right).
