We’re hopping into this Easter Weekend with a basket full of activities! It all kicks off Friday with our regularly scheduled events and a pickleball tournament at 1pm (moved from Saturday). Then, join us for a hands-on Saturday with Easter egg coloring followed by Cub Club. It all leads up to a jam-packed Easter Sunday including a sunrise coffee bar at The Overlook, a nondenominational Easter Service, a delicious Easter brunch with a specially crafted menu, and an Easter egg hunt featuring an appearance from the Easter bunny! It’s sure to be a great weekend at Hare Lake… er… BEAR Lake Reserve!
