March Maple Family Weekend

A weekend to bring families closer together, centered around the process of making maple syrup.  Families will learn what it takes to make maple syrup by tapping trees, collecting sap, cooking sap, and then turning it into syrup.  In addition to maple syrup making, families are free to join in making a craft, take a hike, playing a game, take a nap, or simply relax.  The weekend is a 2 night, 4 meal package.  Meals begin Saturday with breakfast and end with Sunday brunch.
