Youth Sleepover Program

Heritage Park invites you to step back in time and spend the night in the historic Burns Barn.

About the Program

The Youth Sleepover Program will return in fall 2023 and winter 2024. Youth Sleepover Program booking information will be available in late August 2023.

In the evening, let our educational interpreters guide your group through several hands-on and engaging activities, like making ice cream the old-fashioned way! When it’s time for bed, your group will “hit the hay” in one of our 22 bunks. In the morning, enjoy a continental breakfast, an interactive scavenger hunt in our Historical Village and free time to explore our renowned Gasoline Alley Museum. Your group will love spending the night in this unique setting!
