Come join the Southeastern Massachusetts Chapter at AMC Fall Gathering 2019, October 18-20th on Cape Cod. As always, you’ll have a chance to meet, socialize, and share ideas with members from AMC chapters up and down the East Coast. And at this Fall Gathering, you’ll also have a special opportunity to let our local leaders “on Cape” share their favorite – and often hidden – hiking trails, bike routes, and paddling areas with you.

The Cape is particularly appealing in the fall when the leaves start to change, the air turns crisp, and the summer crowds disappear. The location we’ve selected for FG 2019 is the beautiful Camp Burgess in Sandwich, Massachusetts. This great facility spans nearly 300 acres of forests, meadows, trails, and freshwater ponds. It offers a large private lake; spotless cabins (many with lake views); indoor washrooms and shower facilities; and a bounty of on-site recreational opportunities including a zip line, climbing wall, and basketball, volleyball, tetherball, and gaga ball courts.

At this event, you’ll be able to explore the best Cape Cod has to offer! We’re planning a wide variety of hikes, bike rides on quiet roads and pristine trails, and (weather permitting) one or two paddles. The hikes will include woodland hikes, hikes on the National Seashore, dune walks, and naturalist hikes. We’re also planning to have live music, a trivia contest, yoga, campfires, and other activities to keep everyone engaged and entertained throughout the weekend.

One-night, two-night, or single-day options will be available along with delicious and healthy meals in the camp’s expansive dining/meeting facility. Please save the date for FG 2019 and visit https://www.outdoors.org/fall-gathering for more details! Registration opens July 1, 2019.
