Maple Sugaring Mar 02, 2013
An annual event held this year at Camp Eder, 914 Mount Hope Rd. Event starts with an all you can eat pancake breakfast with freshly made maple syrup followed by arts and crafts plus a demonstration of the tapping and boiling process of maple sugaring - selecting a maple tree, drilling into it, tapping, collecting sap and finally tasting freshly cooked syrup right from the fire. Cost of breakfast was $6 and maple sugaring demonstration $8. A lovely camp site with a stream running through it with many cross over bridges. A nice event to bring the family and learn about the process of making maple syrup.

Did you know that it takes 40 gallons of sugar maple sap to make 1 gallon of pure maple syrup?
