This year, from June 5-9, 2017 your child will have the opportunity to learn in a fun, outdoor, exciting environment!

Youth ages 8-13 will have the opportunity to learn kayaking, canoeing, archery, arts and crafts, marine science, environmental education, and swimming. At the same time that youth are mastering these skills, they are also gaining valuable life skills such as independence, decision making, leadership, and responsibility.
