Sunday: March 18-20, Watson Homestead Conf. & Retreat Ctr - March Maple Family Weekend
Have you always wondered where real maple syrup comes from? Have you sugared in the past and wish to share this special tradition with your children? Bring your family and join us in the peaceful and relaxing setting of Watson Homestead for an opportunity to immerse yourself in the process of maple sugaring, while spending quality time with those you love. Throughout the weekend you will get an opportunity to participate in the process of making maple syrup. Everything from tapping trees, collecting buckets, evaporating away water, feeding the fire, and more. Making maple syrup takes time, however, when not sugaring you may want to read by the fire, play a game of carpetball, take a hike, join in an arts and craft project, help man the fire, or simply relax on your own. Our desire is that a weekend spent together will strengthen your familys bond, making lasting memories, through an authentic hands-on experience. We cant wait to see you March 18-20! To register, please call Watson Homestead at (607) 962-0541, E-mail whomestead@stny.rr.com, or mail registration form to: Watson Homestead Conference and Retreat Center, 9620 Dry Run Road, Painted Post, NY 14870
