Please enter through Gate B. There will be a welcome/information table as soon as you enter to answer questions, give directions, etc.
Here’s What’s Happening:
- 10:30am — Official Opening of the new multi-use (biking, running, hiking) trail (“Dialed-in”)
- 12:30-1:30 — Magician Randall Eller @ the stage (limited chairs available — bring camp chairs)
- 1:30-3:20 — Runaway Planet Trio (bluegrass)
- Food Trucks will be available: Bryant BBQ (also hamburgers/hot dogs) and Flako’s Authentic Mexican Food (arriving at 1:00)
- Ice Cream bars will be sold under the camp pavilions starting at noon
- Boats available (canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, stand-up paddleboards). Young children must be supervised, and all must wear life jackets.
- Basketball, volleyball (if the sand isn’t too wet), multiple gaga ball pits, carpetball
- Hiking (the lake loop trail–we recommend the yellow route) and the new Dialed-In trail.
- Mountain Biking. Bring your own, or Rocktown Outfitters will have bikes available for rent at a small fee. The trail is a Beginner-Medium level. There are no especially technical or risky sections, but beginning riders should ask for more information at the trailhead.
- Build a sand castle!
- Relax in a hammock (please take turns!)
- Relax and enjoy the outdoors and maybe meet some new friends!
There is no charge for the event. If you are able, please consider making a donation to our annual Scholarship and Sustaining campaign, which helps make summer day camp financially accessible for as many families as possible. You can do that here (link). Thank You!
The Lake Nixon Outdoor Center is a “front-porch” of Second Baptist Church, downtown Little Rock (2BCLR). It is a gathering space for ALL people from across our community where we provide opportunities for recreation, education, and sanctuary. Online donations to the Scholarship and Sustaining campaign are received and distributed as designated to Lake Nixon by the Second Serving Foundation, an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to support Lake Nixon and other community-focused ministries of 2BCLR.
