Clearwater Forest Friends and Neighbors Day 2018

Join us on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 9 AM – 4:30 PM!

The annual Friends and Neighbors Day is our celebration of Clearwater Forest and the communities of supporters that make it great!

On this day, we open the doors to showcase our beautiful, historic buildings, our exciting programming, and God’s amazing woods and waters. Come and experience the energy, excitement, beauty and activities that Clearwater Forest offers! We begin the day with our annual Lake 2 Lake bike ride, raising dollars for our scholarship fund. Throughout the day there will be tours of the grounds and buildings, games and activities on the main lawn and community tables, where you can learn more about our programs and partnerships. If you are feeling adventurous you may try some of the many activities we offer on land and water, including sailing, paddle boarding, our high ropes course, and the bouldering wall. A picnic lunch, a celebration program, and campfire singing will round out the day.

This event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is strongly encouraged to aid our planning. To register, please RSVP to our Facebook event by clicking here.
If you are not able to RSPV on Facebook, please send an email or call the office with the number of people planning to attend the picnic lunch.

Camping at Loon Point and Grouse circle is FREE on Saturday night on a first come first serve basis.
