Summer Camp

For Grown-Ups
Showtime!

Join us at Camp because I said I would on
Friday, September 8th - Sunday, September 10th
to celebrate 11 years of because I said I would.


Summer Camp for Grown-Ups will be an incredible weekend of exploration, relaxation, and camaraderie! There is something for everyone at this one-of-a-kind event, whether you're an adventure seeker, a wildlife enthusiast, or just looking to relax with your closest companions.


Find your inner calm with our yoga courses, test your accuracy in our chip shot competition, and get your heart pumping with archery and slingshot challenges. We will also offer a variety of arts and crafts activities, if you're looking to exercise your creativity. For people who wish to make a difference and give back to their community, we will also provide hands-on volunteer opportunities.


Our most giving supporters will be able to rent our luxury cabins for the entire weekend. We are excited to also offer a wine tasting made with grapes from our vineyard, live music and so much more.
