Found this great article relative to camping that I thought I would share. For beginners and novices alike! Our ancestors camped for thousands of years, so it’s only natural to enjoy setting up a tent, building a campfire and cooking a meal outdoors. If you don’t know how it’s done, let us help you and your family gain the skills: Texas Outdoor Family will provide all the gear and know-how needed for up to six people to learn how to camp. You just bring bedding and food. https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/programs/texas-outdoor-family?utm_campaign=sep2015&utm_medium=email&utm_source=getaways Once camp is set up, we’ll find things to do, like hiking, swimming or stargazing. This short video shows how much fun learning to camp can be. Autumn is the perfect time to be outdoors in Texas so don’t wait, find a camping workshop and we’ll see you around the campfire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P4k8sHhmAE&feature=youtu.be&utm_campaign=sep2015&utm_medium=email&utm_source=getaways If you are already a camper, please consider sharing your skills. Help families and children learn about nature and the outdoors by enrolling in a Master Outdoor Leadership Training course and make a positive impact on your community and our state parks.
Thought I would share this from the Texas State Parks. Really good info and training "camping trips" for beginners and even well seasoned campers. Lots of different places you can go to learn more about camping. Have you always wanted to try camping, but aren’t sure what gear to bring or what to do with it once you get out there? Well, grab some friends or your family and sign up for one of our weekend camping workshops at state parks across Texas. An experienced Texas Outdoor Family instructor will teach you skills such as how to set up a tent, cook outdoors and build a campfire. Best of all, we provide all the equipment! Just bring your own bedding and food. http://tpwd.texas.gov/calendar/texas-outdoor-family-workshops?utm_campaign=govdelivery-email-spgetaways-jan2017&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery The workshops include organized outdoor activities like kayaking, hikes, fishing and more. Join us for a weekend of fun and adventure! Camping is easy once you get the hang of it, and spring is the perfect time to camp in Texas.
