We have an awesome evening planned for everyone!”

An Undernight is available from 7-11pm for participants not wanting to sleep over. The fee is $125 per tent or family of four for residents and $159 for non-residents. Additional campers are $29 per person for residents and $35 per person for non-residents. Undernight cost is $29 per person for residents and $35 for non-residents.
