Let's Go Camping!

Family camping program for novice families from Oregon Parks & Rec. Dept.

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department proudly presents “Let’s Go Camping”, a fun-filled, weekend, overnight camping excursion for novice campers of all ages. We provide tents, sleeping bags and mattress pads for families that do not have their own to use for the campout. Let’s Go Camping has scheduled 16 weekend camping events around the state. There are ranger led interpretive activities and volunteers always on-hand to assist campers. We have lots of activities for kids and adults as well as presentations on Camping Basics, Leave No Trace, Fire Building and Safety, 10 Essentials of Hiking, and Dutch Oven Cooking. Camping in a group with staff and volunteers on hand has made this a very popular program with single parents and grandparents. There will be plenty of s’mores for everyone around the campfire. There is a Let’s Go Camping weekend event coming to an Oregon State Park in your community this summer. The total cost is only $30 for the WHOLE FAMILY. You can check out our schedule at: Registrations can be made from 8 am. To 5 pm. on weekdays by calling 888-953-7677. Have questions or concerns? Call Jimmy Childs at 503-872-5324 or email at
