What we're about
This meetup is for people who enjoy overnight camping and all the things that go with it such as campfires, cooking, hiking, photography, conversation, astronomy, fishing, just resting, etc. The idea is to get away from our usual busy lives to someplace restful and beautiful. The group is for all ages including singles, married folks, and families. The group will be active all year except summer when bugs and heat dominate. Camping locations could be local or as far away as the mountains. Most trips will be for two weekend nights, but other arrangements may also be made. Check out the pictures (http://www.meetup.com/Raleigh-Camping-Meetup/photos/) from our past campouts to get an idea of what we are about.
There will be 4 main campouts per year - two in the fall and two in the spring. Joining the Meetup is free. Each campout will cost $15 per person. Members who want to bring guests should encourage their friends to join the Meetup. The money will cover Meetup and camp reservation costs. That's a great deal when you consider that it would cost well above $15 to just go camping by yourself for one night at a state facility. Arrangements can be made for members who want to lead their own camping trips through the website. Please read the policies page (https://www.meetup.com/Raleigh-Camping-Meetup/pages/21905800/Raleigh_Camping_Meetup_Policies/) before joining.
We hope you will join us!
