Camping and Night Hikes

Camping Programs

Many schools and youth groups enjoy extending their team building or environmental education programs into an overnight experience. This option is available March through November. An ideal group size is 25 - 100, but arrangements can be made for groups as large as 175. These programs are for ages 7 through adult. There is a required 1:10 adult to child ratio.

Prices include tents, firewood, and an evening campfire treat. Two campsites are available, both within close proximity to city water and latrines.

Night Hikes
Imagine you are a nocturnal animal. In the darkness, how do you find your way through the forest? Discover how these night creatures find their food and stay safe at night. This program begins at sunset. Forest staff will lead your group on a hike to demonstrate how nocturnal animals use their senses to move about at night. This program is recommended for ages 5 through adult.
