Kids and parents tried roughing it — after a fashion — at the Redwood City and San Carlos family campouts at Red Morton Park and Burton Park in July and August. Like the food and entertainment, the tent cities at both locations were impressive.
Redwood City firefighters flamed up burgers and hotdogs, as did the San Carlos Lions Club. Parents tended sleeping bags and tents while kids ran and played. Later, fire pits provided just the right heat for that great camp tradition, S’mores.
Games, live entertainment and stargazing at the RWC camp were mirrored at Burton Park, where a big-screen showing of the Disney film, “Encanto,” capped the evening.
