Starry Night on the Farm combines adventure and learning for a fun family overnight. What better way to celebrate the advent of our Michigan winter. Join MSU Tollgate Farm and Education Center for an exciting overnight outdoor learning experience. Arrive Friday evening after dinner to enjoy a wagon ride and take a snowy hike to get a rare glimpse into what goes on after sundown on the winter farm. Explore the winter night sky with the local astronomy club. Play games or sled on the hill and roast s’mores around the campfire before heading in for hands-on activities and popcorn in the barn. We’ll camp in tents indoors before waking to a farm fresh breakfast. Help with morning animal chores before leaving with warm memories and new friends. Who knew learning could be this much fun?

Cost $ 45 per person. Second child or beyond in the family $ 35 per child. Group discounts available. Tents available to borrow. If you find you need to cancel, we ask that you please do so by November 16. For cancellations between November 16 and December 16, there is a $25 cancellation fee per person.
