NEW JERSEY DEVIL ADVENTURE IN THE PINE BARRENS
Join us for a 2 day camp out at Wharton’s State Park and a quest for the Jersey Devil in the Pine Barrens on September 28-30.
In New Jersey folklore, the Jersey Devil (or Leeds Devil) is a legendary creature said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey. The creature is often described as a flying biped with hooves, but there are many variations. The common description is that of a kangaroo-like or wyvern-like creature with the head of a goat, leathery bat-like wings, horns, small arms with clawed hands, cloven hooves and a forked tail. It has been reported to move quickly and often is described as emitting a “blood-curdling scream”
Then we are heading to Tabernacle, New Jersey for the site of the lost plane known as the “Mexican Lindbergh.” Carranza’s plane crashed in the Pine Barrens after he left New York to fly back to his homeland 87 years ago. He had flown to New York from Mexico on a goodwill mission. We will be visiting the memorial.
Meals will be included. Bring your camping gear, hiking gear and swimming gear. Setup reservations by calling 609-334-5556. Fees will be $60.
