Saffers weekend in Kejimkujik

The countdown is on to the 2017 South African Get Together at Keji! 
I just booked 2 group campsites for the Labor Day Weekend. We will start the festivities Friday September 1, 2017 and leave Monday September 4, 2014. 
The festivities will follow the same format as last year, i.e. we will prepare 1 meal together and you are responsible for the rest. Costs for the shared meal will be shared on later occasion. 
Spaces are limited so please let me know if you plan to attend. The fees are $5 per person per night. To book your spaces please send me an interact transfer to with password "saffer". Please mention your names in the transfer details.
We will have use of shared kitchen with running water. No electricity plugs, no freezers. 
For those who are not campers, you can reach out to Parks Canada at 877 737 3783 to see if you can secure the OTentniks. There are also a few B&B's outside of Keji. 
Please contact me at with questions.
