Stars & S'mores

Friday, January 17, 2020

Enjoy S'mores around the campfire, stargazing, and guided night hikes into the canyon to check on our nocturnal residents. Other activities include animal encounters, lawn games, free kids' crafts, and exclusive event-only gift shop discounts.

Click on the Events Details link for complete details information.  Below is the schedule for the event to get an idea of the activities.

All timed events begin at the time scheduled. Guests should time their arrival at Dogwood Canyon at least 30 minutes prior to their first timed activity. This will allow time to park next door at Newman International Academy, hop on one of our free shuttles, get checked in at the event gate/table, and make your way up to the building where the hike will depart. Keep in mind that the event ends at 9:00p and there are many activities to enjoy, so plan your arrival, departure, and any ticketed event times accordingly.

Each evening, the schedule is as follows:

  • 6:00pm
    • Gates open and shuttles begin transferring guests from Newman International Academy's parking lot.
    • During check-in, guests receive tickets for S'mores, wrist bands for guided hikes, and tickets for animal encounters. Pre-purchased t-shirts and souvenir packages will also be picked up at this time.
    • Guests are free to roam between non-timed activities as they desire until 9:00p: s'mores in Nature Play, lawn games in Nature Play, telescopes in the circle driveway, free kids' crafts in Cedar Elm classroom, hot cocoa for sale in the gift shop, exclusive event-only discounts in the gift shop.
