Pepperwood Family Glamping Weekend

Are you looking for a family getaway this summer, but wish you could pull it off without all the work? Look no further! With this new offering at Pepperwood, you can enjoy quality family time in nature while our staff takes care of all the details. Your weekend will be full of age appropriate activities for youth—and fun diversions for parents too!—led by our highly qualified educators. Families will enjoy nature hikes, games, crafts, and campfire circles together.  There will also be breakout activity times for adults to enjoy kid-free activities on the preserve like yoga, hikes, art, or downtime. Meanwhile, children will explore and play with our educators. We’ll search for animal clues, learn to use binoculars and microscopes, create art, and play games.
