WEPC has 11 scheduled outings each year.
The WEPC scheduled outings for 2023 are listed below. As a member in good standing, you have access to WEPC claims any time for up to 3 weeks at any given claim.
The Outing schedule is subject to change due to weather and the claims condition. Check this website for updates as the date for an outing gets closer. Plan ahead. Attend lots of outings this year. Come for the day, the weekend or longer!
We have good access and "dry camping" at all scheduled outings. "Dry camping" means that there are no hook-ups for water or electricity. Bring plenty of water. Bring a generator if you need electricity.
Saturday night potlucks, campfires on the desert claims, beautiful sunsets, peace and quiet and great camaraderie - it doesn't get better than that.
All members and their Guests who intend to build a campfire or cook using a barbecue while on the claims shall first obtain a CAMPFIRE PERMIT. NO CAMPFIRES are permitted at Big Bear however, propane BBQs are allowed by permit. Campfires are allowed by permit on the desert claims.
