Adventure Clubs

Our Adventure Clubs program provides a unique opportunity for parents and their children to make lifetime memories together. Through our program, parents and their children are able to create close, enduring relationships in which there is communication, understanding and companionship. Adventure Clubs offer a mix of group activities and outdoor adventures, including camping, hiking and swimming. The season runs from September - June (excluding December), and families may join any time during the season.
Once you join a club, you will be able to register for monthly campouts and activities.

Sharing Family Experiences at All Ages

Adventure Club activities launch parents and their children on a journey of discovery, with the child as the explorer and the parent as the guide. The one-on-one time in a fun, special environment builds important bonds through shared experiences like games, crafts, songs, skits, ceremonies and outdoor pursuits like camping, hiking and swimming.
