Rangers to lead campers on overnight in state park

Rangers at Patapsco Valley State Park will lead campers on an Overnight Adventure on June 26 and 27 in the park. Participants will be able to hike through the park to a secluded riverside campsite for a one-night stay without having to carry their equipment, which will be dropped off for participants.

The trip will combine history and nature day hikes with canoeing, fishing, swimming, cooking and campfire activities. Dinner will be cooked over open fires with the assistance of Rangers. The adventure trip is open to anyone age 8 or older. The only equipment required is a sleeping bag, tent, sturdy shoes for the three- to four-mile hike, a change of clothes, toiletries, sunscreen, insect repellent and a lunch for Saturday. The Rangers will provide dinner Saturday, breakfast Sunday, and drinks and snacks. The cost is $50 per person.

Interested campers should call 461-5005 to register.
