Children ages 7-12 are guaranteed a sweet time, while their parents can enjoy a romantic weekend.

Campers will learn about trees, maple syrup production, winter animals, and more! Guest speakers Rockcat Jaros, Raymond Bieri, and Taryn Bieri will be presenting on all things reptiles, teaching us why they are pretty sweet too! Games, crafts, participatory music, and a dance party will make this overnight at Touch of Nature truly a sweet and memorable time. A great first overnight camp experience.
