Lake Creek Lodge
Custom Kids Programs
Play with Starshine at Lake Creek Lodge!
Starshine offers private programs for kids, custom suited to your family and friends at Lake Creek Lodge. Starshine activities blend nature, imagination, and performance in half day, evening, and/or programs by the hour. Kids ages 0+ go on scavenger hunts, catch bugs, create their own nature-inspired performances, identify birds and their songs, build fairy houses, catch fish in the pond, snuggle up to popcorn and a movie, and more, while parents get deep in vacation mode! Stargazing programs for the whole family also available. Request to book anytime!
Kids will get wild with wildlife at Lake Creek as they learn about and perform as animals. They'll search for sign of the resident otters, go on a wildlife scavenger hunt, catch bugs, learn animal language, identify birds and bird calls, and listen to animal stories. They'll also explore camouflage, stalking, tracking, and shelter building.
Imagine on the Metolius
Kids will go on a whimsical quest with the spirit of fantasy, dreams, and fairy tales. They'll build a fort, fairy castles and gnome homes, imagine and perform as characters from nature, and more!
Lake Creek Circus
Kids will get silly as they clown around at Lake Creek. They'll tell jokes, juggle, hoola hoop, and learn about to miming and clowning. They might even create and perform their own circus act!
Creativity on the Creek
Kids will attune to the calming waters of Lake Creek as they learn, listen to, reflect, and revel in our environment's science, beauty, and history. They will learn about the unique science and natural history of Lake Creek. Then they'll artistically express the ecology and beauty of this unique waterway. Choose an artistic medium to explore with ahead of time: photography, sketching, journaling, music, poetry, or short stories.
Kids will play some of the fun games that Lake Creek Lodge has to offer: tennis, ping pong, soccer, football, lawn games.
Kids and families will enjoy the brilliance of Central Oregon's incredible night sky. They'll listen to an ancient story about the stars, look at the moon through binoculars, find constellations, and look at planets through a 70mm beginners telescope (100 x's the human eye).
Kids will experience Lake Creek in a different light as they adventure outside at dusk to explore, sing silly songs, play ridiculous games. They might go on a no-light night hike, play nocturnal animal games, enjoy a campfire (regulations permitting), and stargaze.
