Chicago Park Department Promotes Camping
The Chicago Park District is teaming up with The North Face and its Explore Your Parks program to encourage people to get outdoors this summer and enjoy activities such as family camping at select parks. The nationwide Explore Your Parks program provides activity guide booklets with a purchase of any product from The North Face store, the Chicago Park District reported.
The Chicago Park District's Family Camping program is supported this year by The North Face "Camping 101" program, which is designed for novice campers and gives families an opportunity to camp overnight in select Chicago parks. Activities begin Saturdays at 2 p.m. and end on Sundays at 10 a.m. and include fishing, fire building, guided nature hikes, cooking demonstrations and more.
