For updates and more information regarding COVID-19 updates, click here.
Join the Wicomico Recreation & Parks team (virtually) on Friday, May 29 from 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. for a backyard camping night. Set up a tent in your own backyard, or a fort in your living room and settle in for a night of fun. We'll be starting a campfire, setting up a tent, toasting s'mores, introducing some of our staff and reading your ghost stories!
Before setting up a campfire, be sure it is permitted. Check with your local fire department for rules and regulations regarding your location. Never leave fires unattended and follow all safety precautions outlined by the National Fire Protection Association.
