Short & Sweet- All inclusive Beach & Camping Trip. $75 covers food, camping spot, & fun at the beach for 12 lucky adventurers.

Details (Long Version)...

Summer is officially here this weekend. And we have been waiting for this moment to announce our beach camping trip. Back in the chilly months of winter I was looking forward to summer and I made/paid for a reservation for a big campsite at Cape Henlopen - The coolest place for beach and camping. Not to mention its a weekend at the beach for just $75!

So if you want to go camping at a state park with an amazing beach, sign up fast.
Space is limited. And we are cross posting this event so spots will go fast.

Check in is at 1pm. You can come any time after 1pm afternoon/evening of Friday, June 24th through Sunday, June 26th for a weekend of fun!


I will go food shopping for everyone on the trip. This will be a Veggie & Meat Lovers friendly trip. If you have any food or beverage allergies/aversions let me know and we will make arrangements. Anything special/extra you want to bring is welcome.

Equipment / Lowdown

This is car camping. What that means is that you don't have to hike to the camp site. You can drive up and drop your gear.
We are only allowed 1-2 car(s) per site. All other cars go in the park's parking area, just outside the campground and close to our site.

You need... a sleeping bag, air matress, or whatever else you want to sleep in, like a tent.

Bring a towel, soap, flip flops and whatever else you use for the bath house.

Beach stuff, flash lights, chairs, etc.


If you don't have a tent, let me know. I will be bringing an extra 8 person tent for people without a tent.

We are limited to how many tents/people we can have on the site. So, if you are bringing your own tent let me know as well.

If you like to bike, bring a bike. This place has great bike paths.


Carpooling is always a good idea. Write on the comments area or contact other people in the group to see if they want to carpool. I will have room for 1 person in my car, if anyone is interested.


ATTENTION DOG OWNERS: This is a dog friendly park. You are welcome to bring your dog, but they must be on a leash or the rangers will fine you.

Reserations, RSVPs, and Payments

The cost per person is $75/person. (This covers food, firewood, non-alcoholic drinks, ice and a $1 contribution toward the meetup group fees, payPal fees Etc.)

Once you sign up, I will contact you to make arrangments to meet or give you my mailing address.

I would like to get everyone together for a happy hour or coffee before the trip , so we can meet each other. Details will follow.

Cancellations & Refunds

No refunds will be given due to inclement weather. That's typical of the policy at any campground. If you cancel and your spot cannot be filled by someone else, no refund will be given to you. If you cancel and your spot is filled by someone else, your payment will be returned to you after the event.

No Show

Space is extremely limited on this trip. If you can not make it, please change your RSVP. And let me know ASAP.
If you say you are coming and don't show, you will not be considered serious and get less preference on my next trip.
