Students volunteering at our Day in the Park event.

Day In The Park

On Saturday, October 14, 2017 from approximately 9am to 1pm, Cameron will partner with the City of Lawton to give a facelift to some of the local parks.

Why the Parks?

Great parks make for great communities!

The Trust for Public Land states that city parks and open spaces improve our physical and psychological health, strengthen our communities, and make our cities and neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work.

The City of Lawton is home to over 80 parks. Some of them are neighborhood parks and some are larger community centers.

One work day with many volunteers can make a BIG difference.

Who can participate?

Anyone can participate. Whether you are an individual or an organization, affiliated with Cameron or not, this is a community effort that you can be part of.

Registration

Thank you so much for your interest in the Day in the Park.

Fortunately, we have had so many volunteers sign up that we are at capacity and can't accept any more. Please watch for our MLK Day of Service volunteer opportunity in January. Sign-ups for that will begin in November.

What's next?

Once you have registered to participate in the Day in the Park, you will be assigned a park location. A week before the work day, you will be e-mailed your park assignment. You should dress comfortably and wear closed-toe shoes. You may be painting, weeding, or general maintenance, so please dress appropriately.

On the day of the event, please show up on time and ready to work. Your supplies will be provided by the City of Lawton. You should also bring something to drink, as you will be working outside.

If the weather is not cooperating, check your e-mail the Friday before the event for the Rain Plan.
