ASCE OC YMF Joint Camping Trip
By: Roxanne Follis
Over the weekend of July 17th, 2015, 29 members from Orange County, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino/Riverside YMF went on a camping trip at the San Mateo Campground in San Onofre, California. The weekend kicked off on Friday with a barbeque and campfire. On Saturday, a group of the campers hiked 1.5 miles to the beach while others hiked around the nearby trails. At the beach, members swam, played Frisbee and volleyball, and laid out in the sand. The beach outing was cut short when a rain storm rolled in. The group headed back to the campsite, found comfort under the safety of canopies, and played games. In the evening, the rain let up and the group was able to sit around the campfire and share stories. Despite the inclement weather, members were able to share quality time in an outing that truly brought the group closer together.
