What we're about

We are a camping group of individuals, couples and families in central Indiana. Some that prefer tents and some that have campers. We were originally created on Meetup but over the years we had issues. People joining and not having a clue of what camping is. We grew to 2200 plus members and had about 20-30 people actually interested in camping. No one was interested in paying dues.

So we closed our group...for a while.

As a re-boot we still have members interested in camping but you must pay $8 in Membership Dues per year. Dues will help pay for Meetup and hopefully lead to a free or reduced price t-shirt. You must own your own camping equipment or own a camper. We are looking for people who have a sincere and active interest in camping. Membership Dues includes you and/or your BFF, your spouse, your family, and your pets.

Trial period is 14 days beginning April 20-September 20. Sixty days in the off season. You will be removed if membership dues are not paid after joining. HHC is Membership Driven--ANY member that has paid dues may post an event. If there is an event you are interested in that you have not seen posted, please contact an Organizer and lead an event.

Our camping group usually chooses a state park to camp at and then the members that want to attend are responsible for choosing and reserving their sites or request a campsite to share. Those that have paid their dues are allowed to participate in group activities that may include pitch-ins that may reduce meal expenses. Members usually post their site numbers so we can find each other. We may not be able to guarantee the weather will be perfect but you may develop lasting friendships with those that enjoy camping like you.
