Common Question about the night:

Where will we sleep?

Families should bring their own tents, but Camp Arrowhead does have a few that can be utilized.  Please call Erin Berns to reserve one, act fast, limited number of tents are available.  We will set up camp around the Bounce Pillow.  It is walking distance to bathrooms which will be lite all night long.


I have set up a tent before, but I am no expert…will anyone be there to help me?

You bet!  We will have some camp staff on hand to help with set up and take down.  Please let us know and we will be happy to assist.


Can we bring snacks and drinks?

You can bring as many snacks and non alcoholic drinks as you like.  Please remember that it is still nature and animals love sweet and crunchy treats, therefore we suggest locking all your snacks and drinks in the car before bed!


What items should we bring/pack?

Tent, sleeping bag for each family member, air mattress (don’t forget a pump), flash light, lawn chairs or blanket for the outdoor movie, bug spray!


What is included in the price?
