One night a year, we convert a special section of Railroad Park into an interactive campground for families. A host of experts will give lessons on everything from astronomy to creek ecology to raw materials in nature - and an animal show 'n tell from the Birmingham Zoo will delight campers of all ages.   Bring your tent and your family, and we'll take care of the rest. Registration fee includes all activities and an abundance of healthy and delicious food for families to enjoy throughout the event, including multiple dinner options, a variety of snacks and treats, an array of grab ’n go breakfast items, and a plethora of non-alcoholic beverages all catered by Publix!

It's a rare opportunity to camp in a way that you haven't before‐and to make memories and gain camping insight that you'll take with you through the years.
