The Bradford Woods staff is excited about the upcoming Maple Syrup season! During the seasonal switch between winter and spring, when day time temperatures rise above 40 degrees and evening temps drop below freezing, the tree sap is running. Through that seasonal transition time, they will be out tapping Black Maple and Sugar Maple trees for their precious sap. It takes approximately 50 gallons of Maple Sap to produce 1 gallon of Maple Syrup.
What will they do with all that sap? Host a Maple Syrup Camp, of course! Join them for a maple sugaring adventure, March 9 & 10 to learn now Native Americans and Pioneers made maple syrup. Learn how to identify and tap a maple tree, collect the sap and (if the weather is right) cook it into maple syrup to take home. They'll also explore primitive tools, make crafts and more! There are three levels of registration for the event: Overnight Camp (grades 4-8); Full Day Camp (grades 4-8) and 1/2 Day Camp (grades K-3). Costs vary depending on which level you choose. See their website for more information or to register.
