Join us for a one night kid-centric camping trip at Lake Georgetown. This is a great opportunity to let your kids have all the outdoor fun their little hearts desire without straying too far from home.
This trip will be geared toward fun times for younger children. Our target age group is 2-8 years old. Older kids are welcome as long as they play well with small children.
We'll be staying at Tejas Camp, which offers plenty of shade and grassy fields for safe play. The campground has direct access to hiking trails and the San Gabriel River, but we'll be secluded enough to not worry about the little ones getting to the water on their own. The campground has a large open field perfect for flying a kite, playing tag or just running around.
There are no scheduled activities. I plan on mostly staying around camp and the river Saturday evening and doing a short hike Sunday morning. If anyone would like to plan age appropriate games or other activities, please feel free.
I will be arriving about 3pm Saturday. For anyone who arrives earlier, I've reserved sites 6, 7 & 8.
FOOD PLANNING: I tend to keep it simple and will bring hot dogs & s'mores for Saturday night. Eggs, pastries, fruit and OJ for Sunday morning. I'll have plenty to share, but probably not enough to feed everyone. Be sure to bring your own food and drinks. Feel free to start a discussion if you would like to plan a bigger group meal.
