All waterfront activities are monitored by Red Cross certified lifeguards and staff. We suggest children be at least 10 before canoeing, but all ages are welcome to peddle-boat! Life-jackets are provided.

1 hour session. Max 25 people/session.

Challenge Course

Our Low Ropes course is a great way to build trust, communication, and initiative within a group. Led by trained staff, the group will go through a series of elements to help build on those skills. The course can be tailored to your specific group and goals (a middle school youth group, a sports team, men’s retreat….),  just let us know when you are booking and we can design the right program for you!
