PHOENIX – Take the preparation out of camping by joining Arizona State Parks and Trails at a Family Campout this Spring! Louis Juers hosts a fun learning experience for families of all ages to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities and a night sleeping out under the stars.

Participating in the Family Campout Program will teach families the basics of tent camping, as well as various outdoor skills such as archery, geocaching, astronomy, and more! This is an exciting experience for kids of any age to discover the wonder of time spent outside.

Family Campouts offer valuable lessons to any family interested in learning more about the outdoors.
