Epicurean Bears

The Big Bear Camp
Friends and Neighbors Potluck

Big Bear Camp is such a wonderful setting for a dinner party and we have great cooking facilities. We want to support the local foods movement, build community, meet new people and have fun together at our beautiful forested retreat. That’s why we’ve started a monthly themed potluck for people who love food, fun and cooking. We call it “The Epicurean Bears”.  All of Big Bear Camp’s friends and neighbors are welcome to attend. Guests are welcome and encouraged as well.

If anyone has suggestions for future culinary themes, just let us know.

We usually eat around 5:30 - 6P.M. Come early if you want to hike or hang out. In May, come early to help work on trails or remove scotch broom. Meals provided.


(Tentatively either the first Saturday or first Thursday of the month.) This could change if we have a camp retreat booking. Thanks for  being flexible)
