Family Camping Adventure

Saturday, March 19 – Sunday, March 20, 2022
12:00pm Saturday – 11:00am Sunday

$250 per household, up to 4 people ($25 per additional child)
All ages welcome 
Meet at the Bechtel House

We invite your family to join our experienced environmental educators for a weekend of outdoor adventure.  We will wander the rolling grassy hills and shady woodlands of Pepperwood, discovering what lives in the meadow and along the forest edge. Perhaps we’ll meet a banana slug or salamander – or even find clues left behind by animals! Saturday night we will enjoy an evening campfire, gaze at the sparkling night sky, and unlock the secrets of Pepperwood’s “night life”. The next morning we’ll embark on a bird walk to tune our ears and eyes to our feathered friends before we say our goodbyes. Throughout our time together, we will gain a deeper connection to nature through joyful exploration. You are welcome to share your own favorite stories, games, or instruments around the campfire and during down time. Bring a tent to sleep under the stars or reserve the Bechtel House bunk room (one family only – for an additional fee).

Sunday morning continental breakfast is included! Please plan to bring your own dinner for Saturday evening, as well as your favorite snacks and beverages. A microwave is available for heating food, and you are welcome to bring your own camp stove. Packing list and details to be prepared will be emailed upon registration. 

This event is designed to align with regional health guidelines. Adults and children over 12 years old are required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. We will spend our time outdoors, and masks are required when 6 feet of distance cannot be maintained. In the case of cancellation due to extreme weather conditions or health safety measures, refunds can be offered.
