Kids camp on Gov. Inslee’s lawn for Get Outdoors Day

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Washington Gov., Jay Inslee, hosted 24 campers on his front lawn Saturday night as part of National Get Outdoors Day, The Olympian explained.

The Capitol Campout capped a daylong educational expo outside the Legislative Building with food, music, giveaways and more. The event was intended to raise awareness about outdoor recreation and Washington parks, The Olympian explained.

In total, 24 youth from the Thurston Boys and Girls Club and the South Sound YMCA were chosen for the camping experience. In addition, those organizations each received $5,000 in camping supplies, courtesy of Coleman, which outfitted each kid with camping gear such as tents, lanterns, flashlights and chairs, The Olympian reported.
