Arizona Family Campout Program weekends are designed for families with kids that have little or no experience camping. Arizona State Parks will introduce you to the great experiences you can share with your family and inspire you to continue to explore the great outdoors! You will learn how to set up a tent and receive an introduction to cooking outside, plus you will get to try some fun activities you can do while camping!
Learn the ropes of camping and experience all the fun of being in the outdoors!
Registration is $90 for a family of up to four. Additional family members $5 each. One family per registration. Families can register for one event per season. For families greater than four, special arrangements are needed — please email [email protected] Sorry, children 5 years and younger and pets cannot attend this program. Since this event focuses on learning to tent camp, RVs are not allowed.
Families should bring food, sleeping bags or any bedding, pillows, camping chairs, clothing, sturdy shoes and personal items including toothpaste, towels, soap, etc. The program will provide tents, sleeping mats, flashlights, chairs and all activity equipment.
