This weekend is for families to unplug and experience our off-shore and off-the-grid island together as they explore, learn, and connect with each other and other families. Science programming options will be offered each day and families will also have time to play along the shore line, hike our trails, and even jump off our pier to take a quick swim in the ocean. Come join our island community and make memories that will last a lifetime. $200/person; all ages; children under 3 FREE!!
