Family Camps!

Are you interested in family camps? We are so happy to host you again this summer!

We will be offering family camp for two weekends this year: June 17th-19th  and September 9th-11th.

Some important information to be aware of for Family Weekend
  • Our family camp session will include swimming (spring only), fishing, canoeing, wilderness survival, archery, new to-go art projects included in the price of family camps.
  • Cabin rates are all the same, regardless of size. Cost of $195 for the weekend is based on 4 person occupancy. Every additional person is $40 for the weekend. Children under two are free. One family unit per cabin.
