Great American Backyard Campout


Join us for an unforgettable campout and build lasting memories with your family and friends.  Enjoy setting up your tent and campsite, being together at sunset and gazing at the starlit sky. It is something simple that your family can do to promote happier and healthier children.  We provide the bonfire, s’mores, stargazing, family programming and continental breakfast. Restrooms will be available throughout the event. Thank you to our sponsor, Alpine Shop!   Participants must provide their own camping gear.
