GRP Family Camps

About GRP Family Camps

Escape to the mountains for a restorative weekend of camp fun at Green River Preserve with your family or pod! Explore the Preserve on Mentor Hikes with our trained naturalists. Relax by the lake or in hammockville with a book. Laugh, learn, and challenge yourselves with archery, canoeing, and other camp activities. Plunge into GRP traditions - from reverent council fires to making s’mores around a fire. Throughout the weekend we will hike some of the favorite GRP trails, explore various camp activities, and gather at a safe distance for evening programs. Unplug, slow down, and play in the woods.

We are excited to offer one family camp this spring!

Rookie Family Camp: Friday, April 29 - Sunday, May 1st

Idea behind the Weekend

Are you or your child camp-curious? Wanting to try-on our camp before committing to a summer session? We invite you to escape to the mountains for a fun-filled weekend this spring at Green River Preserve with your family and friends! Over the course of 3-days you can explore the Preserve with our trained naturalists, relax in hammockville with a book, or challenge yourselves with climbing, archery, canoeing, and other camp activities. We’re excited to offer a taste of the GRP experience for the whole family!

Rookie Weekend is the perfect opportunity for younger siblings and first-time campers to try sleep away camp alongside the comfort of family. Future campers can meet our directors and staff, learn their way around the Preserve, and feel right at home when they decide to return on their own for a summer session.

How to Enroll

Tickets are $1000 for a family or group of 4 and $200 for each additional person. Registration is open for the entire family or group pod. Once you fill out the registration form, Hayne will contact you within 3 business days to confirm registration.

We are thrilled to invite you to enjoy GRP with us for what is certain to be a special weekend filled with connection, joy, and memories. We hope to see you and your family this Spring!

It has been a difficult year in a myriad of ways, and we want this weekend to be accessible to any family who wishes to come. Please reach out to us if your family would like to attend but the cost is prohibitive.

Covid Specific Information

Please stay tuned to this page for updated COVID protocols as we get closer to the weekend.

We are following continually refined government and American Camp Association guidelines, and appropriate measures to ensure a safe and fun-filled weekend outdoors. Your cooperation in Covid safety protocols is essential to making this weekend a success.

  • A Covid release statement and specific safety protocols will be sent out before your arrival
  • Families will be housed together on one side of our cabin buildings.
  • Families agree to report any Covid symptoms if they experience any 14 days after the program.
  • Families will be assigned a table and/or area for eating.
  • All cabins will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after the weekend; families are to clean and sanitize their accommodations during their stay.
  • Proper social distancing and hand washing should be practiced by family members.

We will have to do a bit of watching and waiting to see what levels of restrictions are necessary given the environment and guidelines we receive in the spring. Even so, we do know the general shape of what our specific plan will aim for. We know that we will be using all of the best practices developed this year. We greatly appreciate your patience and flexibility.
