If chosen, campers will be provided with a family tent, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, camp chairs, camp stove, lantern, and firewood. A Camping Ambassador will be on hand to teach them the basics as well as fish, hike, bird watch, paddle and more. 

Sunday is the last day to sign up. This is like a lottery system, and candidates do have to meet certain qualifications. Those who apply should hear back from the state by May 31.
