Fathers and Sons Campout in La Mirada
The annual Father and Son Campout was held at Neff Park in La Mirada last weekend. Fathers and their sons enjoyed a fun night of bonding and camp activities under the stars.
Boy Scout Troop #438 provided assistance with setting up tents and teaching the campers knot-tying techniques and some basic first-aid skills. Following dinner, they used craft time to build toy-sized wooden houses and trucks, which were donated by the La Mirada Home Depot.
To conclude the evening, they enjoyed a hot dog and hamburger dinner, roasted marshmallows, and made s’mores while watching a movie. In the morning, campers enjoyed a continental breakfast, which included bagels, pancakes, eggs, and sausage.
“Events like these are a fun way to build family and community relationships,” says Community Services Director Lori Thompson. “The City appreciates the support we received from the scouts and Home Depot.”
