Current Availability

We are currently not offering birthday packages but we do have limited availability for facility rentals. Please inquire at [email protected].

Moose Hill offers fun, nature-focused birthday parties for children turning 4 to 12 years old! 

All parties begin with an 1-hour nature-themed program led by a Moose Hill naturalist; all programs include outdoor discovery time and trail activities, as well as a craft and/or story (if time allows). Afterwards, continue the party for an additional hour in our Blue Room and Sunroom, under your own supervision.

We offer a variety of nature-based themes to make your party unique!
