FIRST TIME CAMPER CLINIC

Friday to Saturday, or Saturday to Sunday

EVERY WEEKEND THIS SEPTEMBER STARTING FRIDAY 8.30.19

Have you never been camping?  Has it been so long that you no longer remember what you need or where to go?  Join BK2BC at our first time camper clinics right here in NYC.  Best part… it’s accessible by public transportation!

The National Parks and Public Lands are ready for your use.  Don’t be afraid to get out there and enjoy it!  We will give you the confidence to head out and get your own envy-worthy Instagram images.

What we do:

When you attend a first time camper clinic with BK2BC, you learn the process for booking a camp site, what you need to bring, how to build a fire, how to setup a tent, what you can eat, and preparing activities for you and your family/friends during your time outdoors.

Where are we going:

We will be using the campsites right in our own backyard, at Gateway National Park.  Meet us at the gate, and we will get you on your merry way to learning the basics of enjoying an outdoor vacation.

Who can attend:

While we think everyone can attend a course like this, we strongly encourage the group/family leader of the trip to attend.  Trials and tribulations are the fondest of memories when you look back, but learn to mitigate the worst of them, and get your excursion off on the right foot.

How do I get there?

The entrance to Gateway’s camp sites are inside of Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn.  It is easily accessible by public transportation.  Just take the Q35 to Flatbush Avenue/Floyd Bennett Field Entrance.  Click the link below for the google maps destination.

You have the option of an introductory hike to the campground (roughly 2 miles on flat terrain), or we can pick you up and bring you straight to the camp store.

Arrival Time

Check in will be at 5pm on either Friday or Saturday.  Check out is at 10 am the following day.

Extra Activities

Added activities are available on the day after for an added fee.  There is archery, paddle boarding, and classes that are available.  Please let us know which adventure you would like to partake in when booking your trip.
