Plan an evening with your children or grandchildren and head to the Community Campout at Cameron Park Lake from Friday, July 12 to Saturday, July 13. Bring your camping gear and let others do the cooking as you feast on a barbecue dinner. Enjoy crafts, campfire songs, storytelling and sleeping under the stars, plus breakfast in the morning. Pre-registration is required.
Are your kids (ages 6-12) still looking for things to do this summer? Let them try the Junior KidzCamp program at the Cameron Park CSD; weeklong camp themes include Toes in the Sand, Hollywood or Bust, Up, Up and Away, Creative Campers, and Welcome to the Jungle. Attendees will enjoy drama, arts and crafts, gymnastics at Tumble Time, visits to Cameron Park Lake, a special field trip each week and more.
