Wanderbirds Hiking Club

Kick Off Fall Hiking With Our 4th Annual Jamboree!

For the fourth year running, Wanderbirds have reserved the entire Camp 2 (Mawavi) at Prince William National Forest Park from Friday evening, September 28 to Sunday morning, September 30.

Camp 2 is one of several Civilian Conservation Corps-built summer camps that are now on the National Registry of Historic Places!

Our group gatherings will be held in the main dining lodge, which has a large fireplace. We may also use the camp's campfire ring that is a short distance from the dining lodge.

Camp 2 features 2-, 4- and 6-person cabins. We urge you to combine a group of friends to reserve a larger cabin! All of the cabins are within a few yards of bathroom and shower facilities. You will need bedding, towels and your personal items, including a flashlight/headlamp. Be set for hiking!

Wanderbirds will provide dinner Friday night and breakfast Saturday morning; dinner Saturday night and breakfast Sunday morning. The cost will be $30 per night, which will include breakfast the following morning for a weekend total of $60. BRING YOUR OWN beverages (other than coffee) and food for lunch/snacks.

On Saturday, there will be hiking opportunities leaving directly from the camp as well as club-lead orienteering, games and other activities. Sunday will feature a regularly scheduled Wanderbirds hike that Jamboree-ers will pay $5 directly to the hike leaders as a “carpool” fee.
