Our 15 acre site near Deep Creek Lake lends itself perfectly to a wide array of sustainable programming for the vacationer or local resident. With hiking trails, outdoor classrooms, and lakefront access, our site is the perfect destination for your outdoor adventures in Garrett County. Our staff at Blue Moon Rising is dedicated to providing meaningful and engaging workshops for our Garrett County community and visitors that fosters an understanding for preserving the natural environment.
During peak vacation season we will be offering daily programs on site for guests staying at our facility. Programs fall into one of five genres: environmental education, art & design, sustainable construction, wilderness survival, health & wellness, and other programs on sustainability. A typical day will have sunrise wellness programs designed to get participants awake and ready for the upcoming day. Yoga, stretching and guided meditation are a few examples of what can be expected from the early program. Prior to lunch a hands on art project will be conducted with supplied materials or materials sourced on site. In the afternoon a guided hike will be incorporated with an environmental or sustainable construction lesson. The day will close out with an arts entertainment event such as an independent film or local musician. All programs are optional for guests and will be open to the public, space dependent.
The spring and fall will be available to small groups interested in retreats or conferences. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting family reunions, wellness retreats, etc. For larger groups (40+) interested in our programming, but may not able to stay with us, please write to us and we will recommend a larger facility to host you.
