July 4th Weekend Campout:July 4-7, 2019



Our July 4 trip is now closed- see you out in nature on another trip!

Join our group camp at Green Creek Campground (elevation 7500 ft near Bridgeport CA).  Although the site is primitive (vault toilets), it is one of the sweetest group camps in the Eastern Sierra.  We will have wonderful access to the best of high country hiking and cool mountain lakes.  You might even find yourself venturing further to check out a real-life ghost town (Bodie) or a natural hot spring.  Our proximity to water and the mixed pine setting in the fresh Sierra Nevada air  make for an excellent group retreat destination. 

Hikes:  Trip leaders will arrange an assortment of different levels of hiking activities for the group.

Rainbow Sierran camping trips also feature a potluck dinner on Saturday evening, and camaraderie around our  propane fire pits, with options for Follies (skits and home-grown entertainment), game night, sing-alongs and/or a dance party depending on the participants interest. 

We hope you will join us for what promises to be a wonderful extended weekend in a magical location. 


(Details to consider when deciding if this trip is appropriate for you)
  • The campground is designed for tent camping onlyCampers may drive cars down to the sites to drop off gear, but must then drive cars back up to parking lot.  Piped drinking water, vault toilets, picnic tables, and a group cooking area are among the amenities.  
  • Like any outdoor area, there may be bees, wasps, and mosquitos.  Although we will do our best to minimize their presence in camp, all campers should be advised and those with allergies MUST  bring epinephrine pens if they decide to come.
  • Registration is limited to 25 participants, first come, first served. Each participant must register separately, and you must be a GLS member to register: non-members must join the club in order to register. The cost of the trip is $60/person. 
  • No pets are allowed.  Even emotional support or therapy animals are not permitted.
  • We will be asking for medical information during registration.  This allows the trip leaders to be informed of the medical conditions you may have prior to an unexpected crisis.  This information is kept confidential.

Angela Romagnoli Camping Scholarship:  This scholarship, which provides free registration to one camper for each GLS camping trip, has been established in the memory of Angie Romagnoli. It is intended for a GLS member who might otherwise not be able to join a camping trip due to financial restraints.

3.    Space on any outing will be assigned only upon completion of registration and payment.

4.    Confirmed reservations are non-transferable.

5.    As with any GLS outing, acceptance of any individual on a trip will be at the discretion of the particular Outings Leader for that trip.

6.    Registration fees will be refunded to any Outings Leader who plans and leads a group hike during camping trips. Serving as a co-leader for such activities does not qualify for a refund.

7.    Once the allowable number of participants has been confirmed, a wait list will be compiled. If a cancellation occurs, individuals will be contacted in the order in which their names appear on the waitlist. Failure to respond within 24 hours will forfeit one’s place on the waitlist. Registration for most trips will close four days in advance of trips.

Cancellations received at least 14 days in advance will be refunded the registration fee, less $10, if and only if the space can be filled. Otherwise, the full fee will be forfeited. Cancellations received less than 14 days in advance of a trip will forfeit the full registration fee. If a personal or family illness or other extenuating circumstances cause a last minute cancellation, that person may appeal in writing to GovCom for a waiver and partial refund. In all cases, no refunds will be issued until after the scheduled camping trip or outing.

9.    To facilitate trip leadership and safety, registration and payment is required in order to participate in any aspect of a camping trip or other outing sponsored by the GLS Governing Committee.
