North East Region

The North East Region has 10 of the Original 13 States, with Virginia and West Virginia on the southern end and Maine on the north end. We have attractions such as Plymouth Rock, the Liberty Bell, Smithsonian, Natural Bridge, Blue Ridge Parkway, Times Square and, of course, our Nation's Capital, just to name a few.

Most of our musters are held during the spring and summer months as the winters can be intense. We usually have a Regional Muster held in June and those that are able attend the National Muster in September.

Chapter Information

Capital Campers

logo

The Capital Campers, more commonly called the “Caps” is the newest chapter in the North East Region of SMART. Generally, our area of coverage is about 100 miles radius of Washington D.C. Musters will be typically scheduled from April through October of each year with joint musters scheduled for the North East Regional muster as well as the National muster. Typical musters will be theme based, such as historic, musical, adventure, site seeing, etc. and will be designated by the muster master for a particular month. Usually musters will begin on a Thursday and end on a Sunday with attendance at any or all of the days in between. Muster "kick off" may consist of a joint breakfast gathering on a Friday, followed by a theme based activity with a happy hour about 1700 and possibly an additional visit to a restaurant in the evenings. Participation in any or all of the activities is up to the individuals.

Our members include both military veterans and co-pilots from all the branches of service who are also members of SMART. If you qualify for SMART membership and want to “test drive” a muster outing with the Caps, please let us know and we will try and accommodate you. If you're ready to sign up, just follow the instructions for joining Capital Campers shown below.

Empire SMARTs

logo

The members come from many areas of New York State and Canada. There are several members who live within an hours drive from Pulaski, where our members own a small clubhouse with approximately 20 RV spots with electric hookup. Most of our activities take place there. We enjoy getting together at our musters several times during the summer and fall months (see muster calendar page). We play games, cards, etc., have a bonfire at night that includes tall tales and occasionally singing, do a lot of eating and have been known to take day trips such as the St. Lawrence River Cruise at the Thousand Islands, Salmon River Falls and the shores of Lake Ontario for picnics. We have a Halloween Party in October (costumes and all), which is usually our last get-together of the season. Because we do have cold and snowy winters, many of the members leave in the fall for warmer areas. There is little activity from the group during the winter months. The few members who do not go south meet every few weeks at near by restaurants for lunch. We invite anyone interested in joining our chapter or any other SMART members to stop by and visit us.

PA Keystoner

Since Sir Admiral William Penn was awarded the territory by King Charles II to pay off a debt in the late 1600s, Pennsylvania has grown to become one of the most visited destinations of the east. Larger than life and rich in history, Pittsburg (the steel city), and Philadelphia reflect some of the best qualities of the Keystone State, becoming the homes to major theaters, modern art museums, parks and hiking trails, just to name a few attractions. With various climates according to region and elevation, Pennsylvania is seldom overcast.
