Am I Really Sleeping on the Beach?
Only if you really want to . . Bluegrass
at the Beach has plenty of conveniently located accommodation
Nehalem Bay State Park, just three miles from the classrooms, is
where most of the Bluegrass at the Beachers stay. The park offers
excellent camping, hot showers, even your choice of daily papers
and is just minutes from beautiful sandy beaches! Each year, Bluegrass
at the Beach reserves a block of 30 or more campsites for
camp participants and their families. Camping is inexpensive, and
the sites are large enough to accommodate two or three parties for
a further cost savings.
Bay State Park web site for all the particulars on
the campground. No need for you to reserve campsites as we have
already reserved our campsites for the week beginning on Saturday
night. You will be sent a list of Campsites with your registration
packet and we will have someone on site to help you settle into
your new home for the week.
Camping sites for the 2008 camp will be reserved for
Satruday afternnon August 9th through Saturday morning, August 16th.
Nehalem Bay State Park has been good to us over the years,
and staffers go out of their way to help us out. They appreciate
how Bluegrass-at-the Beachers respect the park, its rules and other
campers, and we appreciate their continued support. The park's meeting
hall will be our group center at the campground.
Manzanita, a small community just north of the state park, offers
a variety of rental opportunities, from large houses to motels and
has three grocery stores, including a Natural Food Store, many little
shops, restaurants, horseback riding and windsurfing. Nehalem is
filled with antique stores and little shops that encourage looking
and buying. Fourteen miles to the north is Cannon Beach, a popular
tourist location with lodging, shops, galleries and restaurants.
Just four miles north of Manzanita is Short
Sands Beach, a beautiful protected cove for swimming, surfing
and lying on the beach.
