Labor Day WeekendLabor Day Weekend - August 31- Sept 3, 2018

Highlights include a carnival, family tie-dying, games, our ever popular Beach BBQ, as well as our “sing around the campfire” night, complete with roasting marshmallows.

Have your family join our family and make this the Labor Day you’ll always remember!  This year promises to be better than ever, and private housing is now being allocated on a “first come, first served” basis, so hurry!
