We are happy to announce that there was a large turnout for FamCamp! Getting outdoors is hard for many families in today’s age of electronics and the internet, that’s why the BLM and California State Parks hosted FamCamp in an attempt to get families in the outdoors to connect with one another while disconnecting from the stressful world around them. These kids were able to spend quality time with their parents and helped with the clean up at El Mirage for our annual clean up day.

We are very proud that these kids are involved in responsible recreating and are learning how to care for the environment so others will have the opportunity to enjoy them just as we do. When it is time to pass the torch to the next generation we are confident that these young people will take it in their stride and continue the good work.
