Community Campout 2016 - Cameron Park Community Services District
The community campout invites families to experience the great outdoors in a fun, safe, and stress-free environment. During the campout participants enjoyed time dedicated to a magic show, swimming, arts and crafts (made sail boats to float), fishing, walking trail around the lake, storytelling around the campfire, s’mores and stargazing. Participants set-up camp on Saturday afternoon and were able to participate in any of the scheduled activities and were then treated to a BBQ dinner. After dinner there were a number of things to do before bed time. Families then wake up to coffee and a “campinental” breakfast featuring pancakes and sausage patties. Once breakfast concludes, families can hang out at the lake before they pack up camp and call it a day.
Lessons Learned: Kids are introduced to setting up and taking down a camp, they are able to explore the lake through the trails, they have the opportunity to fish, swim, and camp beneath the stars in a safe and secure atmosphere.
This was our 5th Annual Community Campout and the plan is to continue to grow the event next year and beyond.
