The Passaic County Parks and Recreation will join thousands of families across the nation gathering in their backyards, neighborhoods, communities, and parks on June 25, 2022 to enjoy a simple night of camping for the 16th Annual Great American Campout, presented by National Wildlife Federation.

Great American Campout is a part of National Wildlife Federation’s 10 Million Kids Outdoors Campaign. This initiative seeks a future in which all children spend time outside each day, creating a generation of happier and healthier children with more awareness and connection to the natural world. National Wildlife Federation has worked to connect children and youth with nature for decades, inspiring children through Ranger Rick magazine, working with educators to get kids learning outdoors, and helping parents find new ways to engage their children outside.


For our campout we have a bunch of great activities planned:
~Nature Programs
~Fire starting demonstration
~Pancake Breakfast
~Campsite set-up demonstration
~Much more!
