Area residents are invited to spend a night on Suwanee’s “wild” side. The Great American Campout is returning to Sims Lake Park Saturday, April 30. Participants can spend quality time camping with their family overnight in the great outdoors. It’s the most fun one can have in a 20 x 20 campsite – and an award-winning 61-acre park!

“The campout was great fun last year,” says Suwanee area resident Kim Towne. “We loved the music, the friends, the toasted marshmallows!”

The camping area will open at 6 p.m.  All campers must register in advance; applications are available at Campsites are $25 each, and proceeds support the Suwanee SculpTour public arts initiative. Campers under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Boosterthon representatives will host family games around the lake from 7-10 p.m.; be sure to bring flashlights. Other items to bring include tents, sleeping bags, non-alcoholic beverages, food, and bug spray. A light snack (s’mores and trail mix) will be provided.

Camp breaks at 8 a.m. Sunday, May 1.
