Adult Camp

October 2-4, 2020


This adults-only event is open to a small group of adults: 21 and up. It's perfect for couples, or for singles looking to connect with other like-minded, outdoorsy people. After a detailed orientation and tour on Friday evening, participants will settle into their rustic sleeping quarters, and then enjoy a delicious wood-fired meal cooked exclusively over fire without electricity in our candle-lit outdoor dining hall Nacho-Mama's Cafe. Evening activities and a restful night sleeping to the sounds of nature, are sure to reset and recalibrate our guests from the stresses of everyday life.





There is no electricity, cell-signal, wifi, or hot running water onsite, but this outdoor camping experience of crafting and playing in the pristine wilderness of Turtle Island Preserve is sure to reveal some of the magic, only our summer campers get to experience. On Sunday visitors will enjoy a hot breakfast and morning activity before packing up with stories to share.
