1pm- 6pm: Skills session for first time camper families or 'Arts in Nature' for adults
Evening program: Speaker, night hike and campfire activities with s'mores
The first 10 'Clueless Camper' families that register for an overnight stay will be provided with a tent plus have an experienced mentor for questions or concerns that come up through the night. There is an additional charge for this but knowing there will be someone to turn to for those inevitable insecurities is priceless (see registration form, downloadable link on the left side of this page). Bedding (sleeping bag or blanket and pillow) and personal items must be brought with you but other camping necessities will be provided for use on Friday night.
