What we're about

So, you love the idea of getting that tent, or pop-up, camping trailer or RV...or simply the lift-gate open from your SUV and HIT THE ROAD FOR AN EVENTFUL WEEKEND.....but no one else wants to go? Here ya are! THIS IS THE GROUP FOR YOU...

THIS IS THE GROUP FOR YOU IF....Maybe you love the outdoors but your "friend" just doesn't want to "rough it", or you gotta have wi-fi at least once a day to check your Facebook, & you seldom go because your friends are not ready when you are and you don't want to go alone...? Join us and meet new friends...or bring yours! Most of our events will be at a location that has options for new campers or experienced campers...we can line you up to share a car or a tent or a camper if you don't have your own.

THIS IS THE GROUP FOR YOU IF....you really like the idea of driving right to the campsite, pitching your tent or pop-up, and immediately pulling out the chairs, the cheese and the wine or if you want to immediately scale the rocks, climb the trees or start chopping wood....well at least after ten minutes of set-up, thats OK.

THIS IS THE GROUP FOR YOU IF....you really want to hike, camp and "rough it" or if you prefer to have the comforts of your RV or at least a blow-up mattress...most of our events will accommodate both.

THIS IS THE GROUP FOR YOU IF....you really want to go to unusual places and be outdoors, and perhaps have the option of seeing a frog rodeo, hiking up a waterfall, attending outdoor theatre in some small mountain town, seeing historic road trip stuff, exploring ghost towns, perhaps even mountain gourmet dining....or just having smores & toasted marshmallows and giggle at us while the others go crazy doing our tough-guy stuff.

THIS IS THE GROUP FOR YOU IF....if you have never camped before & just bought that $20 Costco sleeping bag, or if you have years of experience and really have great stuff.. JOIN US FOR THE FUN....AND WELCOME TO ALL WHO ARE SIMPLY NICE SINGLES OF ALL AGES...THAT WANT TO HAVE FUN ON TRIPS NEARBY DENVER.
