Family Camp-Out Night presented by Publix returns! Join us Saturday, June 23 to June 24. More details TBA. Stay tuned!
One night a year, we convert a special section of Railroad Park into an interactive campground for families. A host of experts will give lessons on everything from astronomy to camp cooking to orienteering‐with some bird watching thrown in for good measure. Bring your tent and your family, and we’ll take care of the rest.
It’s a rare opportunity to camp in a way that you haven’t before‐and to make memories and gain camping insight that you’ll take with you through the years.
Registration fees include complimentary dinner, breakfast, and snacks galore for each attendee, catered by Publix.
