Ladera Family Campout Sells Out in Less Than 15 Minutes

Anyone who wasn’t waiting at the computer at 9 AM sharp this morning was probably disappointed to learn that the much anticipated Ladera Ranch family campout was sold out in less than 15 minutes after registration opened.  Given that the Family Campout is such a popular event, the sellout begs the question why LARCS doesn’t (1) raise the price (to offset the expense and raise some funds for other programs), (2) find a bigger venue, or (3) schedule another campout to accommodate additional families?
