NYSOGA SUMMER RENDEZVOUS

Summer Rendezvous is an informal gathering of NYSOGA members, their families and friends. It is held each summer in late July or early August at locations rotated around the state. This is a time for guides to camp together, share meals, swap stories, participate in different activities together and usually includes an environmental project of some type whether it's working on our adopted section of the Northville/ Placid trail or other local projects. It is a great way of connecting with fellow guides for some mid summer fun! NYSOGA also hosts a winter rendezvous in March which is more formal in nature!

2018 NYSOGA SUMMER RENDEZVOUS

NYSOGA Summer Rendezvous in the Catskills!
Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center
Friday July 27th - Sunday July 29th

Summer Rendezvous is an informal gathering of NYSOGA members, their families and friends. It is held each summer in late July or early August at locations rotated around the state. This is a time for guides to camp together, share meals, swap stories, participate in different activities together and usually includes an environmental project of some type whether it's working on our adopted section of the Northville/ Placid trail or other local projects. It is a great way of connecting with fellow guides for some mid summer fun! NYSOGA also hosts a winter rendezvous in March which is more formal in nature!

This year we are excited to announce that the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center will serve as our base camp this year. This location provides us a unique opportunity to engage the public, and share with visitors, what a NYSOGA guide can help them discover. We will have an open house to showcase the region, and our talents, for a few hours on Saturday. We are asking all members to consider participating for a portion of the event. It is a great chance to show folks what we do!! We ask that participating guides contact the Summer Rendezvous Chair, Will Soter, ( WillSoter@upstateadventureguides.com), with a description of their activity no later than July 7th.

We will also have plenty of time to enjoy the many adventures the region has to offer, or just relax in the guides encampment. There are numerous activities, and adventures, right at hand. From the new fishing access trail that enters the legendary waters of the Esopus Creek, to the Ridge Trail that leads to Mt Tobias, via the fabled Dunkebar Rd, the property offers an abundance of opportunities to explore, and discover. We are also conveniently located to several notable locations such as the Ashokan Reservoir, Woodland Valley, Slide Mtn., Phoenicia, and Woodstock. I look forward to sitting around the campfire with you!
