The City of Lakewood is hosting a fun-filled, educational and entertaining camping experience for the entire family at this special community event on June 28-29. The Campout begins at 3 pm on Saturday, June 28 and will conclude at 11 am Sunday, June 29. The Great American Campout is being held in communities across the country and provides a great low-cost family outing that doesn’t require a lot of driving. Campsites will be designated on the soccer fields and amenities such as the restrooms will be open for use. A hot dog dinner and pancake breakfast will be provided and classes and workshops on a variety of outdoor skills will be taught by experts. If you don’t have basic camping equipment (tents, etc.) the city may be able to loan the equipment for the event. Sign-up early especially if you have equipment needs. The cost is only $10 for a campsite adequate for six people. Register your family for the event by June 18 at Lakewood City Hall or contact Dennis Higashiyama at 253-589-2489 for further information.
