PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard says families can bring tents to the South Dakota state Capitol lawn for a campout.

The free event is set to start June 10. It’s meant to encourage families to learn outdoor skills and camping on the lawn of the Capitol in Pierre.

Daugaard says state residents are lucky to live in a state with a significant number of outdoor opportunities available. Activities at the Capitol event include nature programs, kayaking, fishing and rock climbing.

There are some tents and sleeping bags available to borrow if families don’t have equipment. Several meals are also going to be provided.
