You do not need to be a swimmer to enjoy this weekend. There are plenty of shallow water spots, and NEO will provide personal flotation devices. Kids are welcome on this event, but keep in mind they will be around adults just enjoying their weekend. Parents will be expected to watch their own children.

The cooking demonstrations will include the use of dutch ovens, propane tanks, outdoor wok, propane stove, propane grill, pancake griddle, JetBoil, and more! You are going to learn how to use it all and how to create delicious camping meals on them. We will provide food for the cooking demos. Feel free to bring whatever items you might like to try cooking on our equipment. Also, be sure to bring plenty of snacks and water.

Dishes will include veggie and chicken stirfrys, fried shrimp, grilled salmon, cobbler, and more. We will make pancakes and scrambled eggs for breakfast. Bring any goodies you think might go well with your pancakes and eggs.

Basics you'll need: tent, sleeping bag or blanket, toilletries, bug spray, sunblock, camp chair, towel, swimming clothes.

The cost of this event is $40 for adults and $15 for children under 16. To make a reservation for your kids, just RSVP and add the proper amount for your children to your reservation cost. For example, if you are bringing 2 kids, RSVP for yourself, but pay $70 for the 3 of you. Refunds are not available for this event. If you need to cancel for any reason, you may give or sell your spot to someone else or consider it a much appreciated donation to NEO.
