Get Back to Nature with a Rockdale Camping Trip

We’re planning 2 distinctive camping trips for summer 2022 to help our members reconnect with nature and with each other in a fun, adventurous way!  Everyone can enjoy a local, family-friendly car camping trip, and we’ll provide guidance to ensure it is safe and fun for all camping-experience levels. For the truly adventurous (ages 15+), dive into the backcountry with a guided 2-night backpacking trip – full training provided. No experience needed.

Sign up by October 28, 2021 Deadline has been extended to November 15! Sign up to advise us of your interest so we can plan the details of each adventure according to interest & group size.  There will be an informational meeting on November 18th.

The Rockdale Temple Environmental Committee is planning a safe, fun outdoor camping experience for members of Rockdale interested in participating in overnight camping with other Rockdale members. Both beginners and experienced campers are welcome.

There are two ways for you to enjoy camping; 1) family car camping and 2) backpacking. Our local Sierra Club camping coaches, Barry Randal and Nancy Ball, will bring their years of teaching experience to teach us the skills needed for beginner campers and backpackers. We will learn what gear is needed, how to use it and how to stay safe while camping.  There are places that rent gear, such as tents, backpacks and sleeping bags for both car camping and backpacking.  

If you own gear and would be willing loan some, please advise us on the form below.

Trip and training fees will vary depending which type of trip, experience level and so on.
