Beach Campout

September 28 @ 5:00 pm - September 29 @ 9:00 am

| $15

*Please note CHANGE OF LOCATION: This program was originally scheduled to take place at Rosewood Beach, however due to the continued erosion of the shoreline this spring and summer, our beach at Rosewood is significantly smaller.  With everyone’s safety in mind we have decided to move our campout to Heller Nature Center.

This Event is for All Ages

  • Pitch a tent and spend the night under the stars!
  • Explore and play in a nature-wonderland.
  • Sit around a crackling campfire led by a Heller naturalist and then camp overnight at Heller Nature Center.
  • Join us for a night trail hike, campfire, astronomy stargazing, and a family scavenger hunt.
  • A campfire with s’mores and a light breakfast are provided.
  • Six-person tents are available for an additional fee.
  • Registration deadline: Sep 25.
  • Click here to register.
