Summer 2024 Registration is NOW OPEN!

Pumpkin Patch & Corn Maze

The fun doesn’t stop at Camp Fontanelle when summer camp ends! During the Fall you can visit Split Oak Hollow, our corn maze and pumpkin patch, for tons of family fun. Our new hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 10am - 6pm. Opening day coincides with our Fontanelle Fall Fest on September 30th and October 1st. This event begins on Saturday at 10am with the opening of the corn maze and a craft/vendor fair (ending at 3pm). At noon we have a Corn Hole Tournament, registration can be done on the Scoreholio App or on site at 11am. The craft/vendor fair continues on Sunday as well. We will hold our traditional worship service on Sunday at 3:30pm under the big tent at Riverview Lodge. Bishop David Wilson will provide the message, Rev. Bill Ritter will lead us in music. A fundraising dinner will be held following the service at 5pm. The dinner requires the purchase of a ticket in advance, you can purchase online here or by mailing a check to camp. Entrance to Split Oak Hollow includes access to the 9 acre corn maze, jumping pillows, petting zoo, hayrack rides, pedal carts, and more! In addition to your entrance fee you can also purchase rides on the 350’ zipline, a climb up the 20’ rock wall, pumpkins, and yummy food at the concession stand. Groups can call to make reservations outside of regular hours.
