We camp to create lasting memories, connect to the natural world, and to 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.    

Participants are chosen by lottery. To enter your name in the lottery, visit nyc.gov/parks/rangers/register on Wednesday, August 14.
