Plan Your Camping Escape
Brighton / 401 KOA Events
Splash of Colour Weekend
We get huge rainbows in the sky over the campground quite often which causes everyone to just stop for a few minutes...it's so beautiful. So, what better way to spend a weekend than having some fun with colours. There will be a painting activity on the weekend where we will show all the kids how to recreate a fun picture. Tye dying t-shirts or pillow cases will also be an activity – bring your own white t-shirt or pillow case or purchase one from us. During the weekend we will also have wagon rides and ice cream socials. During the week the passports to fun and hung games will still be available, but other activities and events will depend on staffing and scheduling. Contact us for more info.
Kid At Heart Weekend
I love face painting. And the artist we ask to come the past two years is amazing. She will be returning again on the 15th – to turn every face in to a work of art ($). The balloon artist – Jungle Jack - will also return, who does amazing renditions of Mermaids or any animal you like. So impressed by the talent in these two! And add to them, the Hamster Ball races will turn even the oldest adult in to a kid at heart. To round out this weekend we will have our regular scavenger games and passports to fun, movies, wagon rides, and ice cream socials. Please note – as most of our staff will be heading back to school we may not have as many activities during the week after this weekend. The passports to fun and hung games will still be available, but other activities and events will depend on staffing and scheduling. Contact us for more info.
Corn Roast Weekend
CORN!!!!!! This is fantastic corn that we source from a local farm. We went through 50 DOZEN last year! Come enjoy corn on the cob, freshly boiled for your enjoyment. And free – what could be better? We also have some fun corny games to play and a corny craft. Movie night, wagon ride, ice cream social, and the rest are all still happening too.
Labour Day Long Weekend
This is a super fun weekend that brings lots of joy to families as a last horrah right before school goes back. We have our ever-so-popular rockets for kids to purchase and then blast them up in the air. And we will do other fun games like a limbo contest to see “how low can you go!”. Scavenger hunts, movie night and ice cream social etc. are all happening to avoid the boredom. This is our last weekend of fireworks for the season. This is the first weekend of Leave Your Rig for the fall. We also offer mid-week discounts again – camp 3 nights and get the fourth night FREE Sunday – Thursday only.
We will also begin to offer winterizing every Sunday from now until the end of the season (AND Monday on Thanksgiving long weekend). You must sign up for a time slot in advance so either leave a comment that you want winterizing when you book online or remember to let us know when you call in. Ask us for details?.
Wine Tasting Weekend
The wine tour in to Prince Edward County was a fantastic hit in the past so we will be planning that again for 2020. Pricing for the wine tour is to be determined once we make arrangements – but it will be a limited seating event so book early and make sure to note in the comment section that you want wine tour tickets. They must be purchased and paid for in advance. We will again have our own wine tasting where Jackie makes a complete fool of herself for $15 per person. There will also be a limited number of guests who can attend this event because we only have so much space i?n our rec hall. So, the first 40 people to sign up are IN. We will also have some kids activities during the day to keep them entertained. This is a Leave Your Rig and Winterizing Weekend.
Value Kard Weekend
Who loves FREE? This is an appreciation weekend where we treat all of our valued campers with a Free Saturday night. You must have a valid value kard in order to get the free night. Lots of kids activities and games are planned for this weekend. Hamster Ball races will be among the excitement. Wagon rides, crafts etc. will happen all weekend long
to keep everyone happy! This is a Leave Your Rig and Winterizing Weekend.
Applefest/Amazing Race Weekend
This weekend will be packed full of fun this year as we are pairing together 2 super fun weekends. Applefest in Brighton is an extremely popular weekend with street vendors and lots of neat events. To stick to the theme we will have some fun apple stuff going on – because who doesn't love a good apple??? Crafts and movies and wagons and games all happening to entertain the family when you're not at the Fest in Brighton. This will also be our third Annual Amazing Race Weekend. We had so much fun with it in 2018 and 2019. The families who entered the contest all competed like crazy and really made our hearts proud. The events will be even more fun and exciting – not to mention challenging. Bring your “A” game if you want to have a chance to win. First prize will get 2 FREE NIGHTS of camping, second place 1 FREE NIGHT and third place gets a Campfire Kit (Wood and a Smore's Kit). This is a Leave Your Rig and Winterizing weekend.
1st Halloween Weekend
So, every year we have two Halloween weekends. One of them is a stand alone weekend dedicated to Halloween and the other is a double header with Thanksgiving Sunday. As all of you have come to expect, this Halloween will not disappoint. Pumpkin carving, a wagon ride for the families to see all the jack-o-lanterns lit up together, afternoon trick or treating, and of course, our try-to-scare the-pee-right-out-of-you haunted walk are all key factors in our Halloween weekends. Please remember to bring your costumes, candy for approximately 50-75 kids, and DECORATE YOUR SITES. We will have a prize for the best decorated site. This is a Leave Your Rig Weekend and a Winterizing Weekend.
Thanksgiving/2nd Halloween Long Weekend
This is an amazing weekend to remember all the things we have to be thankful for and a great way to end the 2020 camping season. Honestly, what better thing to be thankful for than spending time with family and eating Turkey? We have lots of fun events planned for this Thanksgiving Long Weekend: pumpkin bowling, pumpkin ring tossing, pumpkin carving, scavenger hunts/games, wagon rides, movie night, and the ultimate catered
turkey dinner with all th?e fixings. And even more fun added is that it's also our first Halloween weekend – everything will be the same on Saturday as last weekend. Saturday is dedicated to Halloween and Sunday to Thanksgiving including the delicious turkey dinner. This will be the last weekend we offer Winterizing.
