Our Maple Sugaring & Pancake Breakfast is an annual tradition, and you are invited to celebrate the end of winter’s chill by enjoying this sweet gift from the earth!

Enjoy the wintry beauty of the Green Chimneys Clearpool Campus, chock-full of native sugar maples and seasoned experts to show you exactly how it’s done.

After your pancake breakfast in our sunny Dining Hall, take a short walk to the Sugar House to see first-hand the maple sugaring process of boiling down sap to make pure maple syrup. Purchase raffle tickets to benefit our summer camp scholarship program and enter to win amazing local products from a variety of vendors. There will also be multiple hands-on demonstrations, guided hikes, carnival games, free crafts and more. Join us for a day of sweet memories and family fun for all ages.
