Join the Noblesville Parks Dept. and families all across the country for the National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Campout June 25 and 26.
Families will need to bring a tent, sleeping bags, camping gear and food, while the parks department will provide the activities. Families are invited to camp overnight in Forest Park beginning at 3 p.m., June 25.
Parks department staff will be on site throughout the weekend and will be available to assist with tent set-up and other camping issues as well as to help lead outdoor experiences for children and families such as bird watching hikes, stargazing, various nature crafts and games.
“It will be different than in the past. We are trying to get more people involved and appreciate good old fashioned camping in a tent,” Alex Wirth, event coordinator, stated. “We will be providing activities that will get them in touch with nature with our nature and photo safaris, leave no-trace camping and campfire cooking. The activities aren’t required but will be provided throughout the weekend so people can come and go as they please.”
Help provide your children with fun summer memories of playing outside after dark and gazing at the stars. The Great American Backyard Campout is perfect way for kids to experience outdoor time and is the only time camping is allowed at Forest Park.
Pre-registration is required for this event and the cost is $20 per family for Noblesville residents and $23 for nonresidents. Deadline to register is June 22. For more, or to register, call 317-770-5750.
