Camp CRABTREE in Umstead Park

PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY FOOD WITH ANY NUTS, NUT BUTTER, OR ALMOND/CASHEW MILK TO THE CAMP-OUT!

We'll enrich our connections to God and each other through story and time in the beautiful woods of Camp CRABTREE in Umstead Park.

It should be a nice but a hot day. There is plenty of indoor shelter if the weather changes.
If you're spending the night, there are plenty of small rustic cabins - each has four single beds with mattresses. 

Tents, alcohol, and pets are not allowed on the grounds.

If you are coming for the afternoon and evening only, the park gates close at 8PM, and no one is permitted in or out after that time. Please join us until 7:30PM, and then make your way out, or count on spending the night!

5:15 PM  Dinner 
6:15-7:15 PM Mark Riddle, our storyteller, will engage us in story 
7:30 PM  Departure of those leaving for the night
8:00 AM  Breakfast

Directions:
Camp Crabtree at William B. Umstead State Park is located 10 miles northwest of Raleigh off US 70. Take US 70 to the Umstead Park entrance. You will follow paved roads for 1 mile and then a dirt road for 2 miles (it feels longer than that). Take Umstead Parkway past the Visitor’s Center. Take a Left onto Maintenance Road and a Right onto Group Camp Road, follow Group Camp Road until you see signs for Camp Crabtree (not Lapihio). You can drive all the way up to the mess hall to unload and then park in the designated parking lot.
