Overnight Campout

Missing your friends? Want to get out of the house for a night? Experience the 2021 camp season early on Saturday, May 1st, 2021 for an overnight campout at Phoebe Needles! We will play games, roast hot dogs and s’mores over the fire, and camp out in hammocks under the stars! Parents–let us be the sitters for the night and have a much-needed night off! This is for rising 5th graders and up!

Youth Saturdays: November 7th, 2020

On Saturdays throughout the remainder of 2020 and pre-camp season 2021, Phoebe Needles will be hosting a variety of fun and engaging activities to help you escape the COVID-19 blues.

The cost of the day (9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) is $20, and we just ask you bring a lunch, a mask, and an attitude ready for excitement and fun! You may find out more information here!
