The Orange Roamin´ Elks is a Lodge Camper Club that was established on July 6,1984. To be a member of the Orange Roamin´ Elks you must be a current member of a Southern California Elks Lodge. We have one camp out a month, usually on the 3rd weekend of the month and can travel up to 100 miles. We have "dark" months when there is no camping, currently during May, July, August, and December, subject to change.

Anyone may attend one camp out as a non-member to visit before joining the club. Our annual dues are $25.00, payable by March 1st of each year. Meetings are held on the first Friday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the lodge room, unless otherwise specified. All guests are Welcome!!

We have one fund raiser a year at the lodge which is our Chili Cook-Off. This event is held on the last Sunday in the month of October. The Chili Cook-off has both Mild and Hot entries, with awards for First, Second and Third place handed out in both categories.

If you like to camp and have camaraderie with other Elks and campers, come join us once a month for a fun time and adventure. If you are interested in joining us contact one of our officers. They are President Terrie Schatz, Treasurer Jay Clapper, Wagon Master Sherri Bradley and Secretary Sandi Wallace, Officer phone numbers are available at the Lodge or write to Contact Info

Happy Trails,
Terrie Schatz

Orange Peal Article July 2017

The beach was calling...

Twenty-three rigs headed on down to Newport Dunes for our annual trek in June. The weather was the typical June Gloom, but we did see sunshine ½ day. It was in the 70's and no need for even a sweatshirt. Thursday, many in the group headed over to the mainland on the Balboa Ferry. Newport Landing is a favorite for a light dinner and libations.

Camp CopBob and Sherri Bradley hosted the weekend and fixed tri-tip and rice and the club members brought dishes to share. Stuffed to the gills, we lumbered back to the evening fire and tall tales. We never seem to run out of fun. Sherri also fixed a huge breakfast with champagne and the works... Thanks Bradleys!

Kammie Derringer was the sheriff for the trip. She came down our street in her camero with a "cop light on top" and a uniform that made all the men smile. Her ticket book was thick with fines and she collected $117.00 for charity and camper fun! Way to go Kammie!

This was our last June trip to Newport. The corporation that owns the property has decided to stop serving groups in the month of June. We will go in the month of March and pack a sweatshirt. Yahoo!
