Family Events at Shaker Village

The Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill has some great family programming in addition to the traditional tours that they already offer.

In the next few weeks they really have some amazing events for you to consider taking your family to. Just a note, one is a little more of a ‘splurge’ but it might be a nice back to school treat for your kids.

On July 25th (that is this coming Saturday) the village is hosting a family camp out! It is suggested for ages 6+. Their website describes it this way:

 “Calling all adventure seekers! Bring your sleeping bags for this action-packed night in the dark that barely leaves room for a little shut-eye. Discover plenty of behind the scenes exploration, glow adventures, free time with fellow explorers and much more. Fee includes cookout and breakfast, as well as complimentary admission to the Village, which grants you access to The Historic Centre, The Farm and The Preserve, with a full day of self-guided and staff-led tours, talks, demonstrations, activities, farm experiences and more.”

The cost is $65 but, it would be a great way to end summer with a bang. Click here for more information.

The next event coming up is on August 29th and is called the Family Village Chase. It is modeled after the Amazing Race. Compasses, binoculars and other tools are helpful at this event, which is basically like heaven to my children. The price to take part in this event is $10 and you can get tickets here.
