Check out some of these opportunities to check off a few things on your Summer Fun List. And remember, no matter which preserve is your choice, the opportunity to catch fireflies, make s’mores, and enjoy the company of friends and family in the great outdoors is always on the list when you’re camping.
Build a Sand Castle: All you need is a bucket, a shovel and a great imagination to enter Lake Minden’s (CA) sand castle contest during their SANDtastic Beach Party Weekend August 8-10.
Outdoor Movie: Oakzanita Springs (CA) will feature family-friendly movies on their Outdoor BigScreen Theater. Bring your popcorn and blankets and enjoy movies under the stars during the first and last weekends of August.
Outdoor Music Festival: As summer winds down, there’s still the American River Music Festival to look forward to. A stay at Ponderosa (CA) puts you just a half mile from the fun. Mark your calendars for September 12-14.
Scavenger Hunt: This Scavenger Hunt is done in the wild, Idyllwild (CA), that is. Take to the nature trails with list in hand and see what you can find.
