Join us at River Bend Farm for a day (and night, if wished) of fun, food, and festivities to welcome in the summer. The weekend will be a great opportunity to mix with staff and fellow members while taking in the nature and the beauty of the West Virginian mountains and waterways.
Want to join the fun? RSVP at our Paperless Post invitation!
WHEN TO COME: Join us on Saturday, May 20, and enjoy a single day or spend the night and enjoy the weekend!
WHAT TO EXPECT: Saturday will most definitely be family-friendly with dozens of activities to keep you entertained for hours. With over 40 acres located on the banks of the Cacapon River, the farm boasts plenty of adventures to keep you busy or alternatively places to enjoy a quiet nap. We have an armada of water crafts that range from tubes, rafts, swans, and stand-up paddle boards that will all be in use, weather permitting. There are also areas to go hiking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and more!
After sundown the farm will switch gears and turn into one hell of a party. We have a massive barn that has been converted into a fully operational bar with a pool table, shuffle board, darts, and nearly every other bar game under the sun; not to mention a sound and light system that will keep people dancing into the early hours!
On Sunday we will be doing a three to four hour “river adventure” on the Cacapon River. The river is beautiful during the Spring and there is every chance to see bald eagles, black bears, deer, ground hogs, etc.!
WHAT TO BRING: If you wish to camp and enjoy the river, please bring adequate gear. We will be providing the Saturday lunch, Saturday dinner, and also breakfast on Sunday for those that wish to camp over. Beer and soft drinks will be provided, but please feel free to bring your favorite bottle of liquor to mix up a famous West Virginian cocktail. Bring something you can get wet if you plan to join us on the river, and sturdy shoes for hiking.
ACCOMMODATIONS: If you’d like to stay overnight, plan on camping at the farm. You’ll need to bring a tent, sleeping pad/air mattress, and a sleeping bag.
