Camping session set for YMCA

JOHNSTOWN – The Fulton County YMCA and Alpin Haus will conduct a session on camping Thursday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the YMCA.

At the event, attendees will learn from professionals from Alpin Haus about the basics of camping, a news release said.

“For 50 years Alpin Haus has been a leader in outdoor recreation, so it was only natural that we called upon them,” Pete Lawrence, vice president of membership at the YMCA, said in the release. “We are at the foothills of the Adirondacks and yet many children today have not spent a night in the woods, and we wanted to offer those people the chance to learn the right way to get started in this great family activity.”
