The Twin Lakes Youth Wilderness Campout is one of the highlights of the year. 2018’s campout marked 17 years for the event. 12-17 year old community members are invited to a weekend of fun in the lakes and lessons in science. Guest educators share their knowledge on botany, astronomy and other topics in natural resources. Participants hike the mile in to the shelters and set up for the weekend.
The event takes place on the final weekend of July every year. In the past, members of Phoenix Youth Corps and residents of Casa de Belen have also been invited to participate.
If you know a youth who loves the outdoors, be sure to get them involved with this event! The memories made around the campfire and the lake are truly unforgettable.
