OUR BIRTHDAY PARTIES GET A LITTLE WILD!

Forest Birthdays are for those little adventurers who love to celebrate with bugs, pinecones, mud, and campfires. Our adventurous and knowledgeable education team will manage your 3-hour party, which will include hands-on activities customized for your child and their friends. 

We offer several fun party themes, each with their own age-appropriate activities. We can adjust any of these themes to appeal to any age range from 4-12 years old. When you schedule your party, our education staff will work with you to design the perfect season-appropriate theme for your group.

HOST YOUR PARTY AT CNC

We make it easy to host a birthday party that’s memorable and fun! Just choose a theme and our educators will take care of the rest. Families are welcome to bring food and cake with them to eat during the party.

Fairy Houses & Elf Fortresses

Using a little fairy magic, your group will find the perfect spot for the dream fairy house or elf fortress. Using natural materials, we’ll construct the houses and have plenty of time for some birthday fun. 

Mud Pie Bakery

Enjoy our Mud Pie Bakery and create mud-licious masterpieces with all of your friends!

Amphibian Foray

One of our favorite things to do is to catch frogs and salamanders. Our team knows all the tricks in finding these lovely and slimy critters.

Hone and test your wilderness survival skills by building shelters with natural materials, fire construction, and camouflage.
