20th Anniversary Celebration and Overnight

BCA 20th Anniversary Party/Outing (June 8 & 9, 2019).

Cottonwood Campground, group campsite

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Gather with fellow BCAers for an overnight at Cottonwood Campground, Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit, near Medora, to celebrate the past two decades and dream about BCA’s future.

Gather on the morning of June 8th at the campground’s group campsite for personal set-up & lunch on your own. At 1 p.m. we’ll share s’mores and peruse the BCA scrapbooks which Jan has lovingly curated all these years, which will no doubt spark much story-telling. Those who are joining the group for just the day are more than welcome to join in at any time!

There will be afternoon and evening hikes to South Unit destinations, including the Talkington trail, where we will find abundant badlands wild-flowers after last year’s controlled burn in this part of the park and this past winter’s snows.

Participants should provide their own camping equipment, food, bug spray, water bottles, hats, and other customary gear. Hikes will depend upon the desires of the group.

Evening campfire will be time for sharing of BCA memories and brainstorming about its future.

RSVPs are greatly appreciated so we can plan for s’mores and don’t leave anybody behind – to Tama Smith at or call her at 701-260-0326.
