Event Details

Hey Girl Campers!  I have rented Group Site B at Meramec State Park for a Girl Camper Campout where we’ll learn all the basics of camping. If you are an experienced camper join us to share your knowledge with those just getting started in camping.

Meramec State Park, one of the most beautiful State Parks in Missouri, is located about 60 miles from St. Louis, along the Meramec River where you can swim, fish, boat and raft. There are over 40 caves located throughout the park and no visit is complete without a tour of Fisher Cave. There are more than 13 miles of trails so bring your hiking shoes too!

Along with exploring this beautiful park, we’ll learn all about camping. Don’t have camping gear, don’t worry I will provide everything needed except your tent and bedding. If you don’t have those, you can rent them from me.

This is a tent-only group site. There is limited space for small RV’s or travel trailers in the parking area of the group site- no hook ups. Please check with me for an RV space or you can reserve your own spot in the park on the State Park website: https://mostateparks.com/campgrounds/meramec-state-park

Thursday, April 7th: The weekend starts at Meramec State Park. We will learn about tent set up and camp set up and meet and greet Thursday night.  I will provide dinner and drinks. 

FridayApril 8th: – I will provide coffee and breakfast.  The learning will start with breakfast.  Everyone will have a chance to learn cooking and cleaning at camp!  You will get tips for gear to bring and learn different cooking methods throughout the weekend.  We will have time to venture out in the afternoon. I will have lunch available anytime and I will provide dinner. The lessons continue with more camp cooking.  😊 Friday night we will learn fire building, play a few campfire games and of course – they’ll be s’mores!
