Celebrate maple syrup from tap to sap to syrup at YMCA Camp Minikani's ninth annual MapleFest! The highlight of this annual event is the All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Brunch featuring locally sourced food and our own homemade maple syrup. A variety of fun-filled activities will also be available throughout the day, including archery, wagon and pony rides, crafts, carnival games, a preschool open house, and a living history tour of maple syrup making through the ages.
Tickets for the event are priced at $10 for adults and $5 for children. Kids under the age of three are free. All proceeds benefit the Strong Kids Campaign and our promise to help every child experience the life-changing power of camp.
MapleFest is Camp Minikani’s annual celebration of spring and the beginning of the growing season. We spend the month of March tapping trees, gathering sap, and boiling it into maple syrup while guiding visiting schools through the process. As a way to further celebrate nature’s goodness and to support our local community, we have also begun to add locally sourced and grown food to our brunch menu. Bring family and friends of all ages to this event and help us celebrate the close of winter, the coming of spring, and the gifts of nature.
