Come and take part in our Great American Autumn Campout to enjoy an evening full of fun & adventure by camping out in New Canaan’s favorite backyard – the New Canaan Nature Center!

Participants will be welcome to set-up their tents in the afternoon between 3:30-5:30pm. From 5:30-7:30pm, we’ll provide a classic camping-style barbeque dinner of hotdogs, grilled corn, & chips. Lemonade and water will be available for all ages; adults are welcome to BYOB. All are invited to enjoy field games and all around fun on the Green!

As the sun begins to set, get ready for the night time adventure to begin. We’ll fire up the campfire ring and head off into the darkness for a special autumn night hike experience. Upon our return, we’ll fill our bellies with some fireside S’mores, before heading off to bed.

In the morning, awake to fog over the meadow, deer browsing nearby, and the promise of another magical day! A light breakfast of bagels, juice, and coffee will also be served.

Bring your own camp gear and snacks. Access to bathrooms will be available through the night. *NCNC has a limited number of tents available for rent for $25: to reserve yours, please contact us today.

Pre-registration by Wednesday, September 30th, at 12pm is REQUIRED.
