What's Included

What's that you hear whispered on the winter wind, rushing down the mountains and across the lake? Why, it's the hootin' and hollerin' of our favorite Tall Tales characters and legends! Join us February 13-14 for a wonderful weekend of exploration around the stories that have passed through the generations. Adventure with Thunder Rose, start your own orchard with Johnny Appleseed, and have breakfast with Paul Bunyan to learn the secret recipe for his famous flapjacks! Find in yourself a little bit of the heroes and legends that make up the tales that have passed through generations of Americans. This session is open to Cloverbuds (ages 5-9) and their families. Activities will be tailored to that age group, their parents, and their siblings. We also have openings for trained Teen Volunteers. Because if the nature of camp, children under 5 years old will need to remain in the care of their parents throughout the weekend. Discounts available for additional family members after the first two registrations.
