Family Camping

Ranger helping a woman set up a tent

Join our Urban Park Rangers on these free, family-friendly overnight camping adventures in our parks. Our camping programs feature a night hike through the park, storytelling (with s'mores!), and more! We'll bring the tents; just bring your own sleeping bag and bedding. Registration is required and space is limited for these popular programs. To enter your family in the lottery, visit our Urban Park Ranger Registration page.
