Overnight Trips:

Are you looking for a Formal or Cabin style place to house your guests? Camp CONNRI offers both!

The Lodge has thirty hotel rooms, with two twin beds and a private bath. All offer scenic views of the forest or Happy Acres Pond.

There are 12 cabins available with bunks and 2 single beds. Just bring your own bedding and pillow to cover the comfy mattresses and you're good to go!

Currently products are made in Bangladesh, Kenya and Moldova.
