Great American Backyard Campout at Crown Point

The Great American Backyard Campout is a national event each June that encourages individuals, families & friends to camp out together for one night. This year the Crown Point Ecology Center is offering families and individuals the opportunity to relive -- or experience for the first time -- the fun of a night spent enjoying the wonders of nature and sleeping out under the stars at our 130-acre center. Please note that this event is for tent camping only, RVs are not permitted.

The weekend's events begin as you set-up camp. Feel free to bring a picnic dinner or camp stove to cook your own. Take a self-guided tour of our farm and meet fellow campers as you set-up for the night. As twilight falls, the fun continues with staff-guided night hikes, crafts & and a community camp fire. In the morning, you will be treated to a continental breakfast in our historic century barn before you pack up and head back to civilization.

Campout fee: $20 per tent/Crown Point members and $25 per tent/Non-members.
