El Paso City, County Parks & Recs Hosting Overnight Family Campouts in July
If you are looking for a family adventure you can do close to home before the kids head back to the classroom, the recreation departments for the city and the county are hosting their own overnight family campouts at the end of July in celebration of National Park & Recreation month.
Outdoor activities and summer go hand in hand, but, as hot as the days are around here, becoming one with nature in the evening is a much more comfortable option. And doing it under the starry El Paso sky is a major bonus.
“Bear-Foot in the Park” is the name of the overnight event El Paso County Parks & Recreation is holding for families at Ascarate Park, while The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation is doing a team-up with El Paso Public Library for a family outing at Valle Bajo Community Center dubbed Wild in the City Overnight Campout.
Do It Bear Foot in the Park at Ascarate
Here’s the family adventure El Paso County Parks & Rec is offering: a moonlight swim session, all-ages overnight fishing tournament, a movie and food trucks. And if you don’t want to rough it in a tent, they’ll allow you to glamp it in your RV. Picnic shelters with power will be available to rent starting at $50 for the night.
“Bear-Foot in the Park” will take place at Ascarate Park, located at 6900 Delta, from 4 p.m Friday, July 23, to 8 a.m. Saturday, July 24. You’ll find more details and specifics HERE.
Wild Out at Wild in the City Overnight Campout
The campout collab between The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation and the El Paso Public Libraries is taking place at the all-new recently opened Valle Bajo Community Center and Library in the Lower Valley. Family-friendly activities will include fishing, volleyball, a movie, and stargazing.
Wild in the City Overnight Campout is set for 7 p.m. Friday, July 30, to 10 a.m. Saturday, July 31. You can find more information on the flyer posted below.
