Camp de Benneville Pines 

Thanksgiving Celebration

Thursday, November 28 – Sunday, December 1, 2024


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.

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.

Camp de Benneville Pines welcomes you to a peaceful night’s rest in one of seven sleeping cabins. The cabins are scattered throughout our beautiful property, surrounded by forest, and walking distance from all camp activities and other buildings. Each cabin is distinctively decorated with a mountain theme. All offer rustic comfort.

Cabins host between three and nine sleeping rooms and two to three communal bathrooms. Standard accommodation includes twin bunk beds, and there are optional cabin upgrades for cabins with kitchens and living room areas, as well as rooms with double beds, or a combination of the two. Cabin upgrades are limited so register early.

Experience the joy of togetherness in our cozy cabin retreats, where each family is provided a private room to create their own haven of relaxation. For individual adventurers or friends journeying together, our cabins offer a harmonious blend of community and comfort, accommodating 2-4 guests per room. We understand the value of companionship, so we invite you to personalize your stay by requesting roommates during the registration process or asking friends and family to join you ensuring your camp experience is shared with familiar faces and new friends alike.
