Topics covered will range from the various guns available, improvements to the shooting area, gun safety, and even includes the opportunity to shoot a selection of weapons. If the kids can do it, so can you!

Canoeing: For centuries, the canoe was the primary method of water travel of the explorers and settlers. It remains today an important part of the wilderness experience and a fun leisure activity that teaches skills such as communication, teamwork, and physical fitness. Have fun learning how to get into the canoe without tipping it, practice steering and the various strokes associated with traveling in a straight line, something that is a challenge for even the most experienced.
