Mt. Airy Camp Night 2022
Saturday, August 13, 2022
It's back!! The Town's annual camp night returns this year with lots of fun for everyone! Whether you're camping or just coming for the evening, we invite you to join us in these exciting activities:
At 5 p.m., Dr. Todd Rosenfeld will be on-hand to let people look through a solar telescope and safely view the sun! Astronomers have been waiting decades for the sun to cycle back to a period known as Solar Max. Come see for yourself why they are excited!
At 6 pm, a grilled hot dog dinner thanks to members of our Town's Parks and Recreation Board.
At 6:30 p.m., Semi-professional and talented local amateur skateboarders will showcase their skills on ramps and other apparatus provided by Embark Skate Shop. Afterward, the skaters will offer tips and guidance to anyone who wants to try skateboarding.
At 7:30 p.m., Slim Harrison & the Sunnyland Band will perform. Slim is a Camp Night tradition! He invites children (and adults) to join him on fun "instruments" like washboards, spoons and buckets as he plays songs from America's roots.
ALSO, Local Scout Troop 1191 will prepare a campfire for roasting s'mores and host a dutch-oven cookoff. Local Scout Troop 829 will teach a survival skill and regale us with ghost stories around the campfire.
There will also be frisbee games, cornhole, a craft. Or join in pick-up games on the courts and fields. We'll end the evening with an outdoor movie showing of "The Mitchells versus The Machines" when it gets dark.
The public is invited to bring a tent and spend the night in Watkins Park. There will be breakfast provided Sunday morning. Please RSVP if you plan on joining us for dinner or will be camping. 301-829-1424 X135.
