Families can spend some quality time together during a new summertime event at Central Lake YMCA, 700 Lakeview Parkway, Vernon Hills. Family Camp Out takes place from 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4 to 9 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 5.
It’s an opportunity for families to get to know each other better and meet other families at the same time. Activities include outdoor games, a “hike” to the park, swimming, a cookout, s’mores over a nighttime campfire and breakfast on Sunday morning. In the event of inclement weather, Family Camp Out will take place indoors at Central Lake Y.
The cost is $25 per family camp site for YMCA members; $35 for community members. For more information, visit www.ymcalakecounty.org or contact Jaclyn Kling at (847) 367-6797.
