Want to learn how to camp but where to begin? Enjoy camping but haven’t been in a while, and need a refresher on basic skills? Then this post is for you!
On November 12 and 13, South Carolina State Parks is holding their 12th Annual Palmetto Campout at Sesquicentennial State Park, here in Columbia. At the campout, you and your family will enjoy an overnight camping experience at the park, where you’ll learn basic camping techniques from the experts; an SC Park Ranger! You’ll be taught about things like how to build a fire, camp cooking, and more! Don’t have a tent? No problem! The park will provide one four-person tent to each attending family.
All families interested must fill THIS application. It is important to keep in mind that space is limited, so you’ll want to apply as soon as possible. You will then be notified if your application has been accepted. If your application is accepted, you’ll be given information on how to pay the $50 per family (up to six people) registration fee. Also, once you are confirmed for the event, you’ll receive a list of things to pack for your big adventure, so you won’t have to worry about not knowing what to bring.
The deadline to apply is October 31 at 5 p.m., and you can submit your application by mail, email, or fax.
For more information, you can contact Sesquicentennial State Park via email ([email protected]) or phone (803.788.2706).
If camping is something that you’ve always wanted to try, but you’ve never been sure how to get started, you won’t want to miss out on this fantastic opportunity! It doesn’t get better than this! Cooler temperatures, a short drive to the park, guidance from a camping expert, and plenty of activities for the whole family. This is the perfect way to start creating a new family tradition, or to make it come alive again!
