Content Detail

Join us for a campout designed especially for families! Pitch your tent inside the Children’s Garden and get ready to spend a night under the stars. Explore the Children’s Garden and enjoy a guided evening hike followed by s’mores. When you get sleepy, retire to your cozy tent and snooze the night away. In the morning, wake to the sound of birds singing, then enjoy a light breakfast before the Children’s Garden opens to the general public.

You may choose to pitch your tent either on the Children’s Garden main lawn (close to water, picnic area, and restrooms) or in Adventure Woods (quieter and more rustic). Limited numbers of tent sites are available in each location.

Recommended ages: For families with children age 2 and older
