Never camped before? Love camping but aren't sure how to include your kids? Your family's summer adventures start with camping near Lewis and Clark's campsite along Lolo Creek.
This FREE program is designed for folks who have never camped or have never camped with children before. 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, thanks to our generous donors.
