July is National Parks and Recreation Month, and we want you to celebrate with us by getting outdoors! Backyard Campout Weekend is meant to encourage families to experience the joy of camping... all from their backyards. Whether you want to camp for one night or two, between July 8th-10th, we want to see how you turn your yard into your personal campsite. If you don't have the space, show us how you can get inventive!For those that want a little help feeling inspired, register for your ULTIMATE BACKYARD CAMPOUT KIT! Kits will include popcorn, glow sticks, binoculars, magnifying glass, scavenger hunt, recipes & more! Kits are limited to one per child. (Kit registration ends Friday, June 24th. Kits will be available for pick up at Parks & Rec offices in Town Hall on Tuesday, July 5th through Friday, July, 8th.)Don't forget to take photos of your campsite and camping activities over the weekend for the CAMPSITE DECORATING CONTEST.
