Get instruction in family camping

When you’ve got multiple kids, camping can seem very daunting. Beyond all the potential headaches resulting from packing, travel, sleeping issues and outdoor cooking, there’s the worry that the kids won’t have enough to do, and you’ll be listening to them complain about being bored all weekend.

The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks wants to help. They’re running a cool program that promises to help make camping with your family more fun and less of a disaster. I’ve got the insider tip for you:

Fish always seem to bite for everyone but you?

Kids have "nothing to do" when camping?

Sick of hot dogs over the campfire?

Learn how to improve your family’s camping experience!

Check out our Becoming an Outdoor Family event, a weekend full of family fun, camping and outdoor activities. For just $50, we’ll reserve you an electrical campsite for two nights and instruct you in several different outdoor skills of your choosing. It’s a great opportunity for beginning camping families or those experienced families who want to expand their outdoor skills.

This year’s event will be held at Oahe Downstream Recreation Area, located on the Missouri River near Fort Pierre, on June 4-6. As a valued park visitor, we wanted you to be the first to know about this opportunity, before we broadcast it to the world. But hurry, space is limited.
