Family Camping with the Urban Park Rangers

Family Camping with the Urban Park Rangers

Sleep under the stars! Camp overnight in NYC parks with Urban Park Rangers as your hosts and guides. Pitch a tent under the stars and settle in for a night of adventure. Some of the family-friendly camping programs may feature a Ranger-led nighttime hike through the woods and storytelling! They’ll bring the tents; just bring your own sleeping bag and bedding.

The overnight camping events are extremely popular, and in order to make sure that they can accommodate families as fairly as possible, registration is conducted through an online drawing prior to the event. To register for the drawing, please visit the Urban Park Rangers’ registration page.
