Pops And Penlights
Registration starts September 1 for campers who want to participate in the third annual Fathers and Flashlights urban campout.
The camp-out will be held October 3 and 4.
The camp-out is limited to fathers of students who attend West U Elementary School. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration ends September 18.
Participants are encouraged to register early as a sell-out of the 275 campsites is anticipated. Registration is at the West U Community Building; from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and on Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The cost is $40 per father and $35 per child. Proceeds benefit the Friends of West U Parks Fund.
Fathers & Flashlights is made possible thanks to the help of volunteer neighborhood moms. A two-hour volunteer commitment is mandatory for participating families either prior to or at the event.
Moms are needed to work registration, assist with games and crafts, serve dinner, and assist with breakfast and clean-up the following morning. Registered families will be contacted with scheduling details.
