Join the 2nd annual Great American Backyard Campout this weekend at Silver Lake

Want to take the kids camping some place other than the back yard but not too far from home? This weekend the City of Everett Parks Department is holding a family camping event at Everett’s Thornton A. Sullivan Park on the shores of Silver Lake in South Everett. Here’s everything you need to know…

EVERETT – Experience the joys of family camping! Be part of the Everett’s second annual Silver Lake campout where you can learn everything you need to know for a safe camping experience and share campfire fun. Join us from 3 p.m. Saturday, June 23 through 10 a.m. Sunday, June 24 at Thornton A. Sullivan Park, 11405 W. Silver Lake Rd.

Whether you want to brush-up on camping skills or introduce your kids to affordable outdoor fun, this is your chance. Enjoy the beauty of Silver Lake, as we:
• pitch tents and build shelters for comfortable camping
• try Dutch oven cooking
• learn to build a campfire
• take a ranger-led nature walk, and
• enjoy a campfire program and s’mores

Relax as you fall asleep to the sound of wind in the trees and water lapping on shore. Wake to a free Sunday breakfast before packing up. Bring a cooler with something to grill for dinner and your own camping gear (tent, ground cover, sleeping bags, flashlights, camp dishes, etc.). Families that need to may borrow from a limited supply of tents and sleeping bags.

Advance registration is required and costs $15 per family (up to five people) or $5 per person. Register by calling the Recreation Office at 425-257-8300 ext. 2. The Great American Backyard Campout is presented by Everett Parks and Recreation in partnership with Alderwood REI.
