You generally have to bring your own tent to Camping Singles, a program that fills the summer weekends by taking single folks to scenic locales for good times and mingling, but that doesn't mean you have to use it. Fortunately, Camping Singles will keep the ball of summer rolling until late September, improving your chances of filling out some lucky person's two-man.
"We drive up Fridays and have a campout," explains club president Lois Salmon, who's been involved since 1992, three years after Camping Singles started. "Everyone pays their own way, but we make our reservations at the campground in advance and then try to fill up that section of the campground." And even though the group generally caters to folks in their forties on up, that basically means "party time."
And is there more than partying? "We've had a couple of marriages, one couple just got married last week," says Salmon, noting that despite almost twenty years in the business, she remains single. She's still in love with the great outdoors, though.
Group membership is a paltry $15 per year, but tonight's Camping Singles meeting at 7 p.m. at the Denver REI store, 1416 Platte Street, is free, and it's a great way to feel things out and maybe get involved before the long, lonely winter sets in. And who knows? Summer's not over yet. Visit www.campingsingles.org for information.
