Winter Family Escape 2015

The Audubon Center of the North Woods (ACNW) celebrates their annual Winter Family Escape, beginning 4 p.m. on December 27 through 1 p.m. on December 30. Expect wonder, adventure and discovery for all at this winter family camp in Sandstone.

ACNW invites families to escape the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and join them for their exciting family adventure. Activities range from active programs such as snow zoo building to educational programs such as Minnesota Mammals and Winter Ways of Native Cultures to adventure activities like climbing wall and sleigh rides to winter sports like cross-country skiing and kick-sledding to quiet activities such as art and crafts. Celebrate the year-end by spending time with your family in the north woods, making memories that last a lifetime.

Lodging accommodations are perfect for a weekend of adventure, relaxation and retreat. Each spacious room in either Crosby or Lowry Lodge has bunk style beds and sleeps up to six or eight people. The food has a reputation all its own and has become known as the best in the area. Delicious, healthy and wholesome meals, tastefully and creatively prepared, are graciously served in a large dining room replete with stone fireplace and wonderful views of the woods and lake.

All-inclusive rates include three-nights lodging, nine meals and programming. Commuter rates are also available. Location: 54165 Audubon Dr., Sandstone. For more information and reservations, call 888-404-7743, email [email protected] or visit
