Families can pack up their sleeping bags and head to Red Arrow Park this weekend for Marinette’s first-ever Family Fun Campout. From Friday to Saturday, the city will host campers young and old and provide guests with an evening full of food and activities. Adrienne Lacy is Marinette’s Assistant Recreation Director and says while camping isn’t typically permitted at Red Arrow, this event is about getting families outside to discover all the area has to offer.
The cost to participate is $5 per person (those under 2 years old are free), which includes a hot dog dinner, s’mores, and a light breakfast. And, even if you prefer the comfort of your own bed, Lacy says you’re still welcome to attend.
The campout is limited to tents only and families are asked to register by Wednesday. That can be completed by visiting the Marinette Civic Center or by calling 715-732-5222.
