The evening program is followed by a campfires with songs, s'mores and stories. Morning program includes a sunrise wagon ride and continental breakfast.

1) What is your refund & cancellation policy?
If you cancel 30 days or more in advance of the program date, half of your deposit is refunded. If you cancel less than 30 days before the program date, your deposit is non-refundable.
2) Can I request a scout program on a date that is not listed?
Yes! Please call with your requests at least 4 weeks in advance or earlier if possible. Special requests are handled on a case by case basis and dependent upon the availability of our facility and staff. Please keep in mind that during the summer months, our program calendar can fill up months in advance!
3) How early can we arrive for an overnight program? Can we eat dinner there?
The gate will open at 5:30pm and the overnight program will begin at 6:30pm. There are picnic shelters available if you would like to bring a picnic meal and eat between 5:30pm and 6:30pm. Keep in mind that we do NOT allow food in the tipis because we do not want to attract wildlife or rodents. Food needs to be stored in your vehicles overnight.
4) What happens if we are sleeping in the tipis and we see lightening or have inclement weather?
One of our trained staff will stay on site with your group overnight. In case of bad weather or lightening, the staff person will have everyone move indoors (into the yurt and / or Visitor Center) to sleep.
5) What is it like sleeping in a tipi?
Sleeping in a tipi is much like sleeping in a tent. There is a ground cover and tarp laid down so you are not sleeping on bare ground. Each tipi has room for up to 15 people.
6) What should I pack?
Please download our recommended packing list and share with your group.
7) Can I book a badge workshop and overnight program together?
Yes, you can request a badge workshop from 3:30pm - 5:30pm the evening of your overnight or from 9am - 11am the following morning. Please make your request at least 4 weeks in advance.
