Lanterns on the Lawn: A Family Campout at Tryon Palace – September 17, 2017
Bring the family and your camping gear for a night under the stars at our 2017 Fall Lanterns on the Lawn: A Family Campout on the Tryon Palace South Lawn to benefit the Tryon Palace Foundation.
Campers can reserve 15-foot square plots on the South Lawn for a campsite and set up for the evening. Setup begins 2:00–6:00 p.m. Saturday. The Tryon Palace Gardens and Garden Shop will remain open until dusk to allow campers to walk through the gardens, and purchase items from store.
Saturday evening activities will continue with crafts, lawn games, an All-American dinner buffet of hamburgers and hot dogs, making s’mores, a campfire sing-a-long, and a 15-minute moonlit walk through the Wilderness Garden. Wake up on Sunday to a breakfast of coffee, juice, doughnuts, and fruit, followed by a sunrise garden walk and family yoga session.
Feel free to sign up for more than one activity if you would like to help for the evening. We are offering free overnight camping for all staff and volunteers that work the event. If you would like to stay overnight, please contact me for details.
