Fall is a beautiful time to be in the woods!
Bring your family and friends for the weekend and enjoy all the best camp activities: Archery, Canoeing, Climbing, Arts & Crafts, Nature Hikes, Games & Sports, and more or find a shady spot in the beautiful outdoors to enjoy a nap or good book. During the evenings, join our staff in singing songs around the campfire, laugh at their skits, and share your own talents! Our food service staff keeps your taste buds dancing with a variety of fare plus a fully-stocked salad bar every lunch and dinner and a fruit and cereal bar during breakfasts.
Our facilities feature beautiful, spacious cabins with dormitory-style bedrooms, common rooms and bathrooms (Please bring your own bedding and towels). Some cabin groundplans feature separate wings with private entrances/exits. Families will not be asked to share their quarters with other families, but may certainly request to be housed with or nearby friends.
