Once upon a time there was a Fairy named Lyra who landed at Big Oak Canyon. Out of love for this magical place, Lyra created a special day camp for children of all ages to enjoy.

According to the wishes of the Big Oak Canyon Fairy, we’ll start the day off with a treasure hunt, exploring the land and following Lyra’s path through this enchanted setting. We’ll learn the history of Big Oak Canyon and observe the mystical wonders of the nature surrounding us, including fantastical creatures. We’ll gather precious nature treasures at each stop along our fairy route and create a spellbinding backpack charm to take home as a reminder of the magical splendor of Big Oak Canyon. We will end the day knowing we have made the Big Oak Canyon Fairy so happy!
