Seguin families encouraged to camp this month

This month, Seguin families have a unique opportunity to discover the joys of camping and Texas state parks.


Pete Silvius, Seguin ISD director of whole child initiatives and Bethany Polk, Seguin ISD of school climate transformation, have teamed with the Texas Outdoor Family program and Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) to host camping workshop.


Silvius says that on May 20-22, Seguin ISD families can camp at Garner State Park, near Concan, at no cost while participating in the program. The cost of the campsite, access to loaner camping gear such as tent and cots plus a host of fun filled, camping-related activities will be covered.


“While families will be camping at their own site, they will have access to restrooms, hot showers, potable water and electricity at each site. This is a great chance for families to learn the basics of camping and give tent camping a try without having to purchase the most basic camping equipment,” he said.


The Texas Outdoor Family program will loan, lanterns, stoves and fuel, a coffee press, pots, fry pan and utensils in addition to the tent that sleeps six, two cots and four foam pads.


“At Seguin ISD we have expanded outdoor recreational opportunities for our students, families, staff and the community at large. We are excited to build new relationships while participating in healthy outdoor recreation with our Seguin ISD family, friends and neighbors,” he said.


Space is limited so interested families are asked to register only if they will be able to attend. To register, visit
