Are you open year-round?


Who can come to camp?

Any organized group is welcome–school groups, faith-based groups, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, sports teams, clubs and more. We simply ask that each group selects a leader to work with us to build and plan your group's adventure.

How many people can I bring?

We can accommodate groups from 15 to a couple hundred children. To ensure costs are covered, we request a minimum of 15 people for programming and 20 people for overnight stays/meals.

Do you offer overnight camps?

Absolutely. We love hosting kids for overnight and multiple-day adventures. We keep a nice stock of wood for nightly campfires and s'mores.

Can we come for a single day?

You are more than welcome to bring your group for a single day. We've heard that even our half day programs make extremely beneficial field trips for organizations.

What is the cost?

Our coordinators can work with almost any budget to make a visit affordable for you. Please contact us for a more detailed quote.

What about meals at camp – what are our options?

We have a full-service dining hall that serves hot meals to thousands of campers every year. We also have several picnic shelters that day groups can use if they choose to bring their own packed lunches.
