This group is for SINGLE men and women who are AGE 40 and above who are novice through experienced campers.
Are you ready for some adult fun? Time outdoors with like-minded people? Tents, cars, trailers or vans are welcome regardless of your experience. We’re here to camp in relaxing and interesting places near you and, not so near you. The group leaders, Bridget and John, want our members to get away from the daily grind, sit around a camp fire with good conversation and the occasional beer or glass of wine, relax, hike, commune, cook, laugh, and breathe fresh air. We have established a quad-county group consisting of people from Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Diego Counties. Come out and meet friendly people who enjoy camping just like you.
We mostly have 2-day camp-outs since many of our members still work. However, we will have some long-distance trips. There will be some trips where the camp-sites are group sites, but most times each camper will need to get or share an individual site. Each event will clearly describe the location and whether you will have to book your own site. We will also have the occasional "meet and greet" where you can get to know each other.
By joining the group, you agree to the terms mentioned below.
Refunds - When trip organizers collect money in advance for a campsite or activity, cancellations must be made 1 week prior to the start of the event in order to be eligible for a refund. However, some refunds are also subject to campsite policies and those will supersede this rule when the time is greater than one week. Each organized trip will include refund information specific to the event.

You agree that neither you nor any third party will hold any of the group's leaders, officers, or representatives liable for any injury, loss, or damage to your own person or any members of your family, friends, acquaintances, children, pets, or property, arising directly or as a consequence from a group activity.
