What could be more fun than a family campout?

The Shawnee Mission Park Great American Campout
In addition to spending a night under the stars in Shawnee Mission Park, our lucky campers will receive passes for a Pedal Boat Rental and tickets to a great on-stage production at The Theatre in the Park. And as a special bonus, you will receive early admittance to the show.
