“Let’s Go Camping!” at Oregon State Parks

Posted by OCVA / March 4, 2013

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department proudly presents “Let’s Go Camping”, a fun-filled, weekend, overnight camping excursion for novice camping families. We provide tents, sleeping bags and mattress pads for families that do not have their own to use for the campout. Let’s Go Camping has scheduled 16 weekend camping events around the state. Seven events are on the Oregon coast. There are ranger led interpretive activities and volunteers always on-hand to assist campers. We have lots of activities for kids and adults as well as presentations on Camping Basics, Leave No Trace, Fire Building and Safety, 10 Essentials of Hiking, and Dutch Oven Cooking. Camping in a group with staff and volunteers on hand has made this a very popular program with single parents and grandparents. There will be plenty of s’mores for everyone around the campfire.

There is a Let’s Go Camping weekend event coming to an Oregon State Park in your community this summer. Events begin at 10 a.m. on Saturdays but registrants have the option of checking in after 4 p.m. on Friday to enjoy 2 nights of camping for the price of one. The total cost is only $30 for the WHOLE FAMILY. Let’s Go Camping is primarily funded by grants and equipment donations .You can check out our schedule at: http://www.oregon.gov/OPRD/PARKS/Pages/lgc_intro.aspx

Registrations can be made from 8 a.m. To 5 p.m. on weekdays by calling 888-953-7677. Have questions or concerns? Call Jimmy Childs at 503-872-5324 or email at jimmy.childs@state.or.us
