NYC Parks has just announced camping plans for Pelham Bay Park — NYC’s largest park!

From NYC Parks:

8/9/2014, 6:00 p.m.–7:00 a.m.

Location: Pelham Bay Park

We camp to create lasting memories, connect with the natural world, and bond with our families. Camping affords us the opportunity to unplug from the diversions of everyday life and to laugh and play with our families. Tent will be provided. Participants are chosen by lottery. One entry per family.

30 spots available

As a reminder, this is how our lottery system operates:

  • The lottery will be open to submissions for a 24-hour period.
  • We permit one registration entry per household per program. If you enter more than once, you will be disqualified from the lottery.
  • The lottery closes at 11:59 p.m. Soon after, a list of attendees is randomly generated by computer. If you are selected, you will receive a phone call to confirm the day after the lottery.
  • In the case of cancellation, we will select and notify the next eligible group on the (also randomly generated) waiting list.
