Family Camp

Where parents can be kids, kids can be friends and friends can be families.

Let us do the work while you enjoy time with your family! Our qualified staff will provide your family an opportunity to spend quality time together, playing on our climbing wall and ropes course or taking aim on our target sports ranges. Other activities can include canoeing or fishing on our lake, s’mores, night hikes or learning about the local flora and fauna through our outdoor education courses. Whatever your desire, you can come on in, sit back and enjoy a nice family trip together. Best of all, we’ll do the dishes! Sign up today for a weekend your family will not soon forget.
