Family Campout

Saturday, June 4, 2022

Come spend the night in South Lakes Park! You’ll pop your tent in designated areas, eat dinner, have fun, play games, go on a scavenger hunt, sit around the campfire eating s’mores, night hike or stargaze, and then off to sleep under the stars. Wake up with the sunrise, maybe do some yoga, and enjoy breakfast.
Outdoor Expo family activities include fun and educational programs from the Elm Fork Chapter of Master Naturalists, campfire stories by Tejas Storytellers, and more!
Registration for the campout is required. Each registered family will receive two meals (dinner on Saturday evening and breakfast on Sunday morning, vegetarian option available if requested by May 20) and s’mores.
