Designed to be entertaining and educational - not scary. Tours take 1.5 hours After which participants can enjoy refreshments and crafts around the campfire.
All ages welcome. No strollers please. Children must be accompanied by an adult. In case of inclement weather, the program will be held under cover, but dress for the weather. Space is limited and pre-registration is highly recommended; walk-ins will be accepted as space allows, but cannot be guaranteed a tour.
