Midwest Mushroom Camp

September 26 @ 7:00 pm - September 29 @ 2:00 pm

SAVE THE DATE! Follow our Facebook event for further updates!

We have 300 private acres to forage surrounded by state land. We have a commercial kitchen and a commercial dehydrator. We have housing for 100 people. This is a mushroom lover’s paradise.

The photo is from September 26th, 2018. You never know what the weather will be, but you might find: chicken of the woods, hen of the woods, shrimp of the woods, chanterelles, blewits and many many more… and you’ll learn their latin names!

BUT… that being said – magic doesn’t happen according to a schedule. This will hopefully give you an idea of what is happening each day, but experts and cool folks will be around all weekend sharing their knowledge and jumping in in various places.

We will serve three fresh-made meals a day. A variety of housing will be available, including private rooms, private cabins, shared rooms, dorm style cabins, camping, and you are welcome to bring your RV.

A limited number of day passes will be available.

Pricing will be in the range of $50-$450 depending on the housing/meal options selected.  Check out the facility.

Work trade is also available. If you are interested in teaching or planning or cooking, please contact Sasha at

Scholarships are always available. Please contact us if you want to come but cannot afford it.
