Never camped before? Love camping but aren't sure how to include your kids? This event is designed for your family. We'll have learning stations on gear, food, and first aid, as will as fun, family activities.
Cost is just $20 for a family of four ($5 for each additional camper in your group.)
Some gear is available to borrow so you can try camping without investing in special equipment. We provide dinner on Saturday, s'mores, and breakfast on Sunday.
