Jack Surgenor, 10, rolls up his sleeping bag while helping pack up the campsite at Hammonasset Beach State Park where he spent the week with the Cassidento and Gery families of Guilford. The two families and some friends were planning on camping until Tuesday, but they decided to pack up and leave early before Hurricane Irene hits the state this weekend. The park has a mandatory departure deadline at noon on Saturday.
