Santa Cruz / Monterey Bay KOA Events
Sweets & Treats Weekend
Bring your sweet tooth to the campground because you're going to want dessert for every meal. The Fun Cart will be dishing out candy during the day, there will be special yummy s'mores at night, and don't forget to bring your flashlight for a night time candy hunt! Candy games through the day, the ice cream truck serving up sweet treats, then of course the best candy movie at night, can you guess what it is? Willy Wonka of course!
Pumpkin Patch Harvest Weekend
Make sure you get here early, because Mel the Mallow will be out for pictures Friday night while we are having s'mores! We'll have fun Fall crafts over the weekend like a scarecrow coloring contest, tye-die, and a pumpkin decorating contest. There will be a pumpkin patch near the Beach Zone, and a fun movie at night. You'll love all the fun Fall-y activities we have planned, and everything will be socially distanced and safe for the health and safety of our campers.
