Camp at an historic marine military site!
We’ll be camping at an historic marine military site featuring experiential and interpretive activities and guided tours, trails, birdwatching, beach exploration, swimming and kite flying. Are you a new or unpracticed camper? Great, we’re here for you! This all age, all gender campout is perfect for new and seasoned campers and adventurers and is open to BIPOC, Latinx, AAPI, and our allies. Come ready to learn about our surroundings and outdoor skills in a supportive environment.
What to look forward to: At 10am on Saturday June 4th Ranger Kelsey Lang will lead us on an interpretive forest walk experience consisting of multiple activities designed to teach nature awareness skills and deepen our connection to nature and the Natural World. And for youth ages 4+, we invite you to participate in the Junior Ranger program at the park! You’ll complete a series of self-guided discoveries and activities and then we’ll celebrate your achievement and present you with a completion badge. We’ll also enjoy miles and miles of hiking, biking, beach, and interpretive trails, swimming, birding, kite flying, campfires, community, and rest.Book online now!
