In observance of July being The Skowhegan Parks & Recreation Department plans to observe National Parks & Recreation Month with a Maine Backyard Campout, Friday through Sunday, July 8-10.

This event is to encourage families to get outdoors and away from the screens and enjoy a camping experience in their own backyard.

Those who don’t have a backyard can be creative and set up a campsite inside or at a friend or relatives.

Register at the Skowhegan Community Center at 39 Poulin St. and receive a free packet with ideas for an adventure.

For more information, call Mickey Mickey Hoyt, program assistant, at 207-474-6901.
