Cape Henlopen St. Park BEACH Trip 7/26-8/3

Crew 5,

Although the details haven’t been made about when we do what at the beach we have made reservations for 7/26 – 8/3.  You can come the entire time or some of the time.  You will need a bike.  If other family members come other that adult chaperons or drivers we may need them to reserve their own camp sites.  These sites are filling up quick and may be booked for the weekends all together now.  Please look at the following information.  Go onto Wiggo and put your commitment to coming so we can plan further.  There will be a comment area too.

Here is the website

There are 3 beaches: Public, Herring Point (surfers and boogie boarders), and the isolated campers beach that is the closest at .5 mi. from the camp site.  At the camp ground and beach we’ll do the Fort Miles Lantern Tour which is in the camp ground.  Miles Historical Area

During World War II, the Delaware River was a chief priority for defense planners because of the access it afforded to the giant trade centers of Wilmington, Philadelphia, and beyond. Fort Miles, located in what is now Cape Henlopen State Park, was a key piece in the nation’s coastal defense at that time.

Other things we can do include: Kayak, Seining, Fire Power Tour, Salt Marsh Hike, Bird Walk, Local Dessert and Dunes trip,  Frisbee Golf, Ghost Crab Hunt, Toad Hunt,  Climb the WWII tower, & fish on the pier.  We will bike 3 mi. from camp to historic Lewis.  We could rent a boat and go out on the ocean fishing or sightseeing.   We may bike 1.5 mi. to Cape May Ferry, cruise over on the ferry and bike around Cape May and return.  We can visit Cypress Swamp and one or more other beaches: Bethany, Rehoboth, or Ocean City.  At some of these beaches you can go parasailing.
