SUKKOT CAMPING TRIP

Sukkot is here again, and we will be going on our annual, congregational camping trip. We will be at the campgrounds at Mormon Lake Lodge this year for 7 days from Friday to Friday and we are excited to share the camping experience for those who have signed up. We have a few RV sites left for Monday thru Thursday but all tent sites have been filled.

DIRECTIONS TO THE LODGE & CAMPGROUND

From Flagstaff: Take the Lake Mary Hwy (FH3) about 21 miles (towards Payson) to the Mormon Lake Village turn-off sign. Turn right and travel about 7 miles to the lodge. You will see the roping arena, campground and RV Park on your left and you will not miss the lodge.

From Payson: Take Hwy 87 north and go through Strawberry and Pine to the little village of Clint's Well. Just past the store and gas station, turn left and take FH 3 (Lake Mary Hwy) north towards Flagstaff. Travel about 35-40 minutes and you will pass the Stoneman Lake Road turn-off. About seven miles past the Stoneman Lake Road turn off you will see the south entrance to Mormon Lake Village - watch for the Mormon Lake Village sign on the right side of the road. Turn left and travel two miles to the lodge. You will not miss the lodge.

We will have special services throughout the weekend as follows:

Worship service on Friday evening at 7 pm

A Morning Shabbat Service hosted by Beth Mayim Chaim

A Pot Blessing Meal for all the attendees at lunch on Saturday
