Shooting Star Sleep Out
Saturday, Aug 11 – Sunday, Aug 12
Every summer, the Perseid Meteor Shower streaks across the sky, putting on a fabulous show before summer draws to a close. Come together with the ERC and other families for that sweetest of summer pleasures: sleeping under the stars! This year, we will hold the event at Camp Perkins, on Lake Alturas in the Sawtooth Valley. In addition to nature workshops led by ERC staff and local experts on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning , there will also be chances to canoe, kayak, and explore!
The event includes Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast. This will be a sleep-out; we will have access to the shared bathhouse, but no cabins. The goal is to sleep without tents, for a full view of the star-show; however, we anticipate a very chilly night, so families may set up tents around the periphery of our campsite as a “back-up” plan. Join us for this amazing weekend!
Member Cost $30 per adult, $15 per child
Non-Member Cost $35 per adult, $20 per child
