Many different storytelling events are held under the serenity of the pines at Fox Ridge, our outdoor education & entertainment venue, across from the main doors of the Lodge. Campfire Stories are every Saturday night from July through October.
Join us and some of the Illinois Valley’s most engaging storytellers as they share stories, legends, facts and fiction around the fire.  Audience participation is welcome so be ready for some fun!
Storytime starts at 7:00 pm. Come and sit around the campfire and share your own stories as well as listen to stories told by professionals. Don’t worry about the snacks. Popcorn and supplies for s’mores will be sold at the Fox’s Den.
