Ready to Join?

Come and join us for an event like no other (We expect to have at least Protected content . We will be hosting a joint camping event that will include members from the following groups:

1. UAE Camping Club
2. UAE Explorers
3. Dubai Movie and Fun Addicts
4. Dubai Desert Camping Group

We are combining efforts from different groups to arrange a large event for everyone to socialize and enjoy the outdoors.

All attendees must list their details on the Carpool sheet located at Protected content . You are not considered as confirmed for this event until you have listed all of the necessary information. Unlike other past events I will not be coordinating rides so if you do not have a car then you need to locate a person from the carpool sheet who is driving and has space. Coordinate directly with them for space and a ride out to the campsite.

PLEASE NOTE: No late arrivals will be allowed. There will be one convoy departing the sedan parking at 4:00 pm and a second convoy departing at 5:30 pm. There will be no trips back to the sedan parking at night so please plan to stay the full evening. If somebody chooses to leave and gets stuck it will be your responsibility to recover your own vehicle (we will not be coming to recover you).

1 - Weather appropriate clothing
2 - Tent & Sleeping Bag
3 - Lamp or Flashlight
4 - Food & Snacks
5 - Drinks (Please ensure you bring adequate water)
6 - Chairs & Blankets
7 - Games & Activities

FIREWOOD & CHARCOAL: Please bring firewood and charcoal! It's really not nice to have people come and expect others to have it and then we end up with none. You can get a nice box of firewood at any petrol station for AED 50

FOOD: In the past we have found that it is better to have attendees bring and contribute food items in a "potluck" manner. This usually ensures that there is adequate food for everybody and provides a wide variety to choose from. The following are some suggested items:

- Chicken, Lamb or Beef BBQ (kebabs)
- Vegetables
- Fruits
- Salads
- Bread or other Appetizers

Please bring along a BBQ grill if you have one. The more we have available the easier it will be to cook what everybody brings.

No littering permitted - anyone found littering will be removed from the group. Everyone needs to take at least 1 bag of garbage when you leave. Please don't expect the organizers to clean up after you. Everybody should bring some trash bags with them.

Please feel free to message (Eddie) atProtected content if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you and we look forward to camping with you soon.
