The Suttle Lodge

Mini Camp


Play and stargaze with Starshine in the gorgeous outdoor setting at Suttle Lake!

Mini Camp

Starshine offers private outdoor adventures for kids, custom suited to your family and friends at The Suttle Lodge. Starshine camps blend nature, imagination, and performance in day, evening, and/or custom programs by the hour. Kids ages 0+ go on scavenger hunts and quests, catch bugs, create their own nature-inspired performances, identify birds and their songs, build fairy houses, forts, make snow angels and more, while the adults get deep in vacation mode! Private stargazing tours for the whole family also available. 

"We booked a half day with Jennie for our group of four and six year old kids at Suttle Lake. They all had a great time and we all got to do some adulting in the lake- the best part of the weekend!"


Private Stargazing Tour

Adults and kids will enjoy the brilliance of Central Oregon's incredible night sky together with local naturalist and educator, Jennie Sharp. You'll listen to an ancient story about the stars, look at the moon through binoculars, find constellations, see planets, and learn amazing facts about our universe, all in the gorgeous setting at House on Metolius. Programs begin a half hour after sunset and last approximately one hour. 

Cost: 1-4 people $150; additional adults $20, kids $15 (max 8 individuals)

"Jennie was awesome and stargazing was a highlight of our vacation. She tailored the experience and kept my 3 and 5 year olds engaged. They sat still for 1 hour (!) learning about the stars. Now they repeat facts about black holes, the Milky Way and red giants. My husband and I loved it too."
