The Arizona Family Campout Program is a weekend program designed for families that have little or no experience camping. Our experienced staff and volunteers will introduce you to great family experiences that will inspire you to continue to explore the great outdoors! This experience will teach your family how to set up a tent, introduce you to cooking outside, plus you'll get experience fun camping activities like archery, mountain biking, geocaching, fishing, live animal demonstrations and more! Choose from 14 great weekends from September 2016 to June 2017.

Arizona State Parks host fun, educational Star Parties and Astronomy events throughout the year. This program, in operation since 2007 continues to grow in popularity with more events added each year. Typical star night events feature lectures (often with guest speakers), and viewings of celestial objects (planets, nebulas, stars) through a variety of telescopes. Some events have information tables and afternoon solar viewings as well. Events are supported by Arizona Astronomy Clubs and individuals who invite the public to come see Arizona's amazing night skies.
