Family Campout: River Camping

Explore the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary after hours and join us for a night

Explore the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary after hours and join us for a night of camping under the stars. Have an early dinner at home, and then come with your family, your tent, and enjoy some s',ores at a riverside camp site.

This camp out will focus on the Ipswich River. We will start the evening setting up our tents at the top of the hill, and then head down to the river for an evening canoe trip. We'll look and listen for otters, beavers, muskrats, and owls.

After we return we'll share dessert around the fire pit and play games. Then it's off to bed to wake up for an early-morning paddle downstream to look for turtles, frogs, herons, and creatures that live above and below the water's surface. We will provide a light breakfast upon our return to the campsite. All canoe equipment and basic canoeing instruction will be provided.
