In addition to the various activities and things to do on site we also have a couple of weekly events that we host and invite you to join.
- Every Monday between Memorial Day and mid August we host a barbecue for all guests. This is a great opportunity to get to mingle and get to know one another better. We supply burgers and dogs/brats and invite guests to bring a favorite dish to share. We hope to have you join us on Monday evenings for dinner!
- Starting in the second week of August Adam will host an evening under the stars. Adam is an amateur photographer and loves taking pictures at night of stars, meteors, and of course his favorite-the Aurora Borealis. Many people have asked questions about how to best capture the sky on their camera. Starting in 2016 Adam will host a photography night once a week and together we’ll try to capture the sky! Rather than pick a designated night, each week Adam will check the weather and aurora forecasts and pick a night to target. The event will begin when it is “dark dark” probably around 11 pm in August and 10 pm in September. Adam plans on being out that night for 2 hours. All levels of photographers are invited. If you don’t have a camera, no worries, Adam is happy to show you what he is doing and you are welcome to hang out and visit. If you would like take pictures with us please bring a digital SLR camera that can be manually focused, can manually adjust the ISO and has adjustable shutter speeds in a manual setting. (Most DLSRs can do this). Adam also recommends bringing a tripod if you have one. Keep in mind, Adam doesn’t claim to be a camera expert and is not a professional photographer. But he does love to take pictures and enjoys looking at the night sky. Check out some examples of Adam’s pictures at Birch Forest Lodge.
