You must bring your own tent and camping gear (sleeping bags, blankets, etc). Your tent should accommodate your whole family (ages 6 and older only).
Metro Parks staff will be present for the entire camp out. We will be based out of the farm grounds area. Remember, it is the 1880s for the night - no shower facility, water is hand pumped, and there is an outhouse restroom. In case of rain, there are some covered areas.
Cookout - 1880s Picnic style. The cookout will be done over an open fire, and each family will participate in cooking. We are providing hotdogs as the main food item, with farm-made biscuits and apple butter. If you have special food requirements please feel free to bring your own hot dogs. Also feel free to bring 1880s picnic foods for your family to add to the cookout. No plastic. Plastic was not invented until 1907, so challenge yourself with a no plastic picnic that includes sandwiches, whole fruits and jarred items.
Slate Run Farm is located at: 8978 Marcy Road Canal Winchester, OH 43110
