Camp Lindsay Celebrates the Great Outdoors!

Celebrate the great outdoors all summer long at Camp Lindsay! Lindsay wants to inspire kids and adults to explore nature and learn how to enjoy the outdoors while respecting and enjoying wildlife.

So, throughout the summer months, come to Lindsay for camping themed events and activities! The Manzanita Room at Lindsay will be transformed into a campsite and will offer fun activities like tree and paw print rubbings, interactive camping maps, and scavenger hunts.
