This is a great opportunity for students to discover the beauty of nature beneath the snow! Please call for dates and availability.

The second initiative is our “Refer-a-School” program. If you refer a new school to our camp and they book at least a three day stay, you may be eligible to receive a 5% discount off your entire school’s next visit to camp! Please call or email for more details.
