Registration is Now Open: Arizona State Parks' Award-Winning Family Campout Program Introduces Families to Camping and the Outdoors

August 17, 2016

PHOENIX - Do you want to give your kids a break from electronics and introduce them to new outdoor adventures? Sign up for the Arizona Family Campout Program designed for families who have little or no experience camping. During an activity filled weekend, the Program teaches families how to set up their tents and prepare food while camping and also inspiring them to continue to explore the great outdoors.

Our trained camp coordinators will assist your family in exploring the outdoors, while you create a family tradition that you'll cherish for many years! Campers will learn how to set up a tent, build a fire and be introduced to outdoor cooking while enjoying a variety of activities such as fishing, archery, mountain biking, hiking, campfire stories, birding, and more. Families will also get to work on a service project (specific activities vary by park).

Registration is now open for fall and spring sessions at AZStateParks.com/Family. Program fee is $70 for up to a family of 4, and additional family members are $5 each. Sorry, children 5 years and younger or pets cannot attend this program. Registration is limited and is first-come, first-served. Visit AZStateParks.com/Family for more information including dates and locations.

Arizona State Parks' Family Campout Program was recently the recipient of the 2016 Tourism Spirit of Service Award at the Arizona Governor's Conference on Tourism and was the recipient of the 2015 Youth Enrichment Award from the Arizona Parks and Recreation Association.
