TOURS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!!
Maple sugaring has been the way of life for the Brant family for eight generations. The sugar camp, located in Shanksville PA, is surrounded by a beautiful 300 acre maple tree farm and is host to many visitors and tour groups throughout the year. The beautiful log sugar camp, with antiques balcony and stunning fireplace, is available to rent for your next special event. Visitors are welcome to see the maple process first hand, purchase maple products and join in the fun!
The indoor tour begins with a short welcome video, followed by a tour through our interpretive room where you will learn the history of maple syrup, hear about antique farming tools and relics, and see the history of the Brant Maple Camp first hand. In our log sugar camp, you will be introduced to the tools of the trade including the tree with a tubing tap demonstration, the evaporator, and the reverse osmosis machine. You will learn about the process from start to finish. After the tour, taste the results of the season, from pure maple syrup and candies, to delicious maple cotton candy! We have added a camp store and invite everyone to purchase products or souvenirs to remember their experience. This tour will take approximately an hour to complete.
The second option is the full-tour, which includes everything offered in the indoor tour, with the addition of a wagon ride through our beautiful sugar woods! This tour will take approximately 2 hours to complete.
