We camp to create lasting memories, connect with the natural world, and bond with our families.  Camping affords us the opportunity to unplug from the diversions of everyday life and to laugh and play with our families. The Urban Park Rangers celebrate the tradition of camping throughout the spring and summer, and we look forward to welcoming your family. Tents are provided.

Space is limited and families are chosen by lottery.  To enter your family in the lottery, visit nyc.gov/parks/rangers/register on Wednesday, May 28th.
