This has been a time of high stress for everyone, especially those working on the frontlines and the families who love them. We want to show our gratitude and give your family a chance to have fun together in a peaceful, relaxing setting.


Arts and crafts, time spent in nature, campfires, (socially distanced) group games, mindfulness activities, great food, swimming, and more!

Stone's Throw Family Weekend offers an opportunity to take a break, relax in your family's private cabin, and enjoy activities together.

These photos are from last year's location. Updated pictures and information on accommodations coming soon, but they'll be similarly rustic cabins.
