PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ Gov. Gina Raimondo and her family are hosting a “Rhode Island Capital Campout” to celebrate June as Great Outdoors Month.

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management says the Democratic governor and her family will host the campout on Saturday at Pulaski State Park in Glocester.

The public is invited to attend as part of the state’s Great Outdoors Pursuit.

Families are taking part in a summer-long game aimed at getting children and parents outdoors and involved in more physical activity.

Campers were told to arrive between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. for outdoor activities, including an obstacle course, canoeing and fishing.

A campfire sing-a-long with s’mores and a movie is planned for Saturday night. Participants are invited to camp overnight.
