The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) welcomes beginning campers to join in an overnight guided camping experience this summer at an Oregon state park. Registrations are now being accepted for the Let's Go Camping program. Events will be held at nine different parks.
For $30 per family, OPRD provides tents, sleeping bags and other gear. Volunteers will help campers set up tents, build campfires, prepare meals in the campsite and more.
Activities could include ranger-led hikes, owl prowls, bat chats and plenty of s'mores.
