Join the Waiting List

Imagine sitting around a blazing fireplace in Homet Lodge, surrounded by family and close friends, some you didn’t even know you had. The aromas of roasting turkey, fresh-baked apple pie, homemade bread and hot apple cider fill the air, mingled with the faint aromatic fragrance of cedar smoke.

This describes the Thanksgiving Celebration at Camp de Benneville Pines.

Come to camp and experience a hassle-free Thanksgiving that will be the best you’ve ever had. This is a special weekend for families, singles, couples and young adults. It is truly an intergenerational event!

The sounds of laughter fill the air, and you are lulled into a state of contentment and joy because YOU DON’T HAVE TO COOK THANKSGIVING DINNER, or do anything, really. No, you don’t have to work yourself into a frenzy, because in the lodge kitchen, our staff of skilled cooks will be busy preparing a traditional Thanksgiving feast with all the fixin’s and trimmings of a home-cooked meal. 

Remember, Thanksgiving is about sharing and caring for family and friends. One special tradition at Thanksgiving camp is the sharing of our talents and skills with others. We call upon participants to lead a program/activity or offer a workshop in order to provide a wide variety of activities throughout the weekend.

Please start thinking about what you can share with others to make this weekend even more special. Do you have a good game or art project? Would you like to lead a hike or yoga class? Can you lead songs at a campfire? Then lend a generous hand by offering your gift with others this Thanksgiving camp.

Your participation ensures that there will be plenty of workshops, activities and special events for children and adults to keep you occupied. Or, you can take the opportunity for complete relaxation if you prefer. And the price couldn’t be more reasonable.
