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!
Family 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.

Questions about GRP Family Camp Weekends
Rookie Weekend is open to all family members. We do ask that at least one adult accompany children throughout the day. If a child is too young for an activity, one adult can remain with them and not participate.
Family Camp Weekend is open to anyone who wants to come to camp! We are only housing 1 family group or pod per cabin side. If you have formed a pod with a family (or 2) and want to form a group of 4 or more with them for this event you can. Cabins have 9 single beds.
The official arrival time for Weekend is between 5 - 6pm on Friday. Please check in at the Back Field via the Opening/Closing Day entrance. If you plan to arrive at a later time, please contact with your estimated arrival.
Please plan to depart between 2-3pm on Sunday. If you plan to depart at an earlier time, please contact with your estimated departure.
Stay tuned! We will send you a detailed schedule prior to your arrival at camp. Our goal is to recreate a typical camp experience at GRP as best as we can for Family Camp.
Your family will be staying in your own cabin, included in the ticket price. However, you will need to bring your own bedding and towels.
