Scarecrow Festival

Saturday, October 7 & Sunday, October 8, 2023

9:00am - 4:00pm each day


Camp Y-Koda will hold it's 3rd Annual Scarecrow Festival Fundraiser hosted by Christopher Farm and Gardens and Camp Y-Koda. This fall community event features scarecrows displayed along the beautiful 500-acre property along a mile of Lake Michigan Shoreline, on the private property. Thousands of community members enjoy a fun-filled day exploring the gardens, enjoying youth activities and voting for the best Scarecrow designs. 

Money raised at this event directly benefits our community by connecting youth and families with the outdoors by providing quality hands-on outdoor experiences through Camp Y-Koda.

We extend a special thank you to those that have participated in this event in the past - your support and generosity have made a difference in the lives of thousands of youth. For those who are planning to contribute for the first time, we look forward to your involvement and support for years to come. Scarecrow Festival is a great way to promote your business within our community while at the same time supporting a worthwhile cause and a one of a kind teambuilding activity. In 2022 nearly 2,000 people attended the festival. 


We are seeking event sponsors, volunteers and scarecrow competition participants. This is a great way to get your name in the community and fun team-building activity for your employees, students, or family. All proceeds benefit Camp Y-Koda!
