Join the Barrington Park District for a memorable evening under the stars, camping out at Citizens Park. It’s a great way for novice campers and families to become familiar with the joys of camping without venturing too far into the wilderness! The Park District will provide grilled burgers, hot dogs, chips and a drink. The finale of the evening will be a campfire where participants will enjoy roasting marshmallows for s’mores. Coffee, juice and donuts will be served in the morning. Participants must provide their own tent and sleeping bags.
Kent “The Outdoorsman” Hengels will be demonstrating a safe and easy way to start a campfire using dryer lint!
Not sure how to set up your tent? No worries! Kent has seen it all, from small solo tents that fit in a backpack, to large family-style tents that allow for all the luxuries in life, he is ready to help you set up and get camping!
Car to campsite transportation! No need to lug everything from your car to your campsite. Kent will take your gear (and your kiddos) to the site of their choice by way of golf cart!
Registration deadline: 9/1 by 5:00pm (spaces permitting).
