Dunes Vintage Camper Rally & Glamping Weekend, Indiana Dunes SP
Start Date: 4/29/2017 All Day
End Date: 4/30/2017
Event Description:
Indiana Dunes State Park will offer a special themed weekend to explore the natural and cultural resources in the dunes from a glamping perspective April 28-30, 2017.

Glamorous camping, or glamping, is a way to experience the splendor of the outdoors without forgoing the creature comforts you can't live without. Whether in a tent, yurt, airstream, or tree house, it's camping on a grand scale. Weekend programs will focus on relaxing in the outdoors, beach glass jewelry making, a camping recipe tasting and exchange, example glamping sites, beach yoga, and other activities. 

The full schedule is as follows:
Friday  April 28
7:30pm Sunset Hayride!  It’s a hayride with a glamping twist.  Join us for a sunset hayride to the beach and back, beginning at the campground gate.  A $2.00 per person donation is suggested.  Register at the camp gate before 7:30pm, as space is limited!

Saturday April 29
