Section Gunks Work Weekend Wrap-Up

We had a beautiful weekend for the 3rd Annual Metro New York Section, Gunks Campground work weekend. Nineteen AAC Staff and volunteers turned out to helped get the campground ready for the 2018 season. We enjoyed a communal dinner, campfire, beverages & s'mores Saturday night. Sunday was a gorgeous day and most of us headed to the cliff for some well deserved climbing. A big thank you to all that lent a hand.
