For families who have little or no experience camping in the great outdoors, an opportunity to camp with some experienced guidance is available in early August! A friendly, knowledgeable and excited crew of staff (including myself) from MassWildlife and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) are organizing an overnight family camping event at Harold Parker State Forest on August 7-8, 2010.
We’ve designed this program especially for families who may have never camped but want to try it out. We welcome families of all kinds—bring nieces and nephews, grandchildren, cousins or friends. Program participants will sign up sign up for some instructional skill sessions on archery, canoeing, fishing and hiking. A night hike, campfire and other optional activities will also be available for all to participate. It’s a terrific way to spend time in the great outdoors!
This event goes on rain or shine—‘cause that’s how it works outdoors! The registration fee covers all instructional sessions, materials, camping gear, and two meals (Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast). No campsite fee or fishing licenses are required. Space is limited so register early. Give this family experience a try. I look forward to seeing some of you around the campfire!
