(KPLR)- Does camping out in the most famous park in St. Louis make you say wow? If you're looking for a safe and easy way to get introduced to outdoor adventures, Dan Zarlenga from the Missouri Department of Conservation can help.

He joined us to talk about WOW! St. Louis.

WOW St. Louis is an annual camp-out and Outdoor Skills and Conservation School held in Forest Park. It is designed to connect people to the outdoors by teaching beginning and intermediate skills in outdoor recreation and safety. Their goal is for families to take away outdoor skills they can use and expand on later.

This year WOW St. Louis will run between September 13 & 14th. Advanced registration is required. The cost is $10 per person for Saturday classes which include lunch and all equipment needed.  There is an additional $5 fee for individuals who plan to camp overnight.

You must register by August 29th.
