The Basics of Camping

5/16/2014 to 5/17/2014 | Knob Noster State Park | Knob Noster, MO

If you are fairly new to camping or just want to learn some new ideas and share your experience, we want to help make your campout an event to remember. At this program, you'll learn how to set up a tent, properly use a tent and properly care for a tent when not being used; how to cook in the outdoors; how to leave no trace while camping; and other outdoor skills and games. A fee for camping will be collected. Interested families should call 660-563-2436 for more information and to register. All participants must pre-register by May 14.

If you don't have a tent, don't worry! You can borrow one from the park. You may also camp in your camper trailer and still attend programs offered this weekend as long as you pre-register.
