At the end of the summer when camp sessions end, the LightHouse rents out the facilities of Enchanted Hills Camp for the Blind as a retreat. Every dollar raised by rental groups goes right back into Enchanted Hills, supporting our transformational camp programs which are free for blind and low vision children.
Since Enchanted Hills was developed for kids, it’s a great setting for family reunions, church groups or any group with youngsters. We’ve got a pool, an easy nature trail, pet goats and a playground. The meals at Enchanted Hills Retreat are homemade and hearty, and we can accommodate the dietary needs of your group. Our cuisine is delicious and family friendly.
And while most people think of wine tasting when they think of Napa, there are great activities for kids in the area. At the Petrified Forest in Calistoga you can learn how an ancient Redwood Forest was turned into rock. A trip to Safari West is like a mini trip to Africa with a safari jeep tour where you can see antelope, zebra, wildebeest and dozens of other animals roaming the foothills. Kids and adults alike are fascinated by the Old Faithful Geyser of California, which erupts as regularly as its more famous cousin in Wyoming.
And some of the Napa’s wineries are especially kid friendly. Try Castello di Amorosa, where they have a big castle complete with a dungeon for exploring. Children drink juice while adults sip the fermented kind. Sterling Vineyards is also a good option, with a tram ride to the top of the hill affording grand views of the
Sonoma Speedway, a kayak on the Napa River, a trip to the Jelly Belly Factory or Six Flags Discovery kingdom are all within a half an hour’s drive.
Join the fun. Reserve Enchanted Hills for your family reunion, church group or corporate off-site with 30 to 120 attendees. Call (415) 694-7310 or go to www.enchantedhillsretreat.com.
