It's a weekend of camping-themed fun without mosquitoes, sunburn, poison ivy, or the risk of COVID-19 exposure.

The big event kicks off Friday afternoon and lasts through Sunday afternoon, just like a regular weekend camp. Include are activities such as a "make s'mores at home" event, a Yellowstone animal meet-and-greet, tent-building, a camp dance to learn, fireside musical performances, a  NASA star party for curious junior astronomers, scavenger hunts, campfire bedtime stories, arts and crafts, and more!
