What to Expect:

This weekend will be filled with all things camping- campfires, hikes, roasting hot dogs, going to sleep hearing the crickets and waking up to the sunrise. If you have never been camping we are here to answer your questions, remind you to put on bug spray and make sure you are prepared for each activity. If you are an experienced camper, this trip can be a fun way to connect with your friends and show them something you love.

We will provide all the activities and food you need for the whole weekend. As long as you pack everything on the packing list, you will be prepared. This campsite has running water and flush toilets, so you won't be roughing it too much. If you need sleeping gear, feel free to rent ours. You will receive a tent, inflatable sleeping pads, sleeping bags and fleece liners.
