Maple Syrup Camp

January 9, 2018 by Jen Smith

The Bradford Woods staff is excited about the upcoming Maple Syrup season!  During the seasonal switch between winter and spring, when day time temperatures rise above 40 degrees and evening temps drop below freezing, the tree sap is running.  Through that seasonal transition time, we will be out tapping Black Maple and Sugar Maple trees for their precious sap.  It takes approximately 50 gallons of Maple Sap to produce 1 gallon of Maple Syrup.   If your students are interested in learning more about the Maple Syrup process, come join us at our Maple Syrup Camp, March 9th and 10th!

Join us on the maple sugaring adventure to learn how Native Americans and Pioneers made maple syrup.  Learn how to identify and tap a maple tree, collect the sap, and (if the weather is right) cook the sap into maple syrup to take home.  We will also explore primitive tools, make crafts, and more!  Older kids will have a longer overnight camp and younger kids can come just for the day!

There are several options to participate in the program, to enroll please check out our event calendar for Maple Syrup Camp.
