Just returned from this adventure...highly recommend it as one of the best we have attended in the intergenerational offerings. The "leaders" were personable, knowledgeable, concerned and FUN! The venue of kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing etc. were GREAT and the leaders made sure we were safe at all times. We had two grandchildren with us, boy, age 10 and girl, age 13. A highlight for the kids was the pontoon ride on the final night and a last chance to jump from the rock area into the lake. Many thanks to everyone who made this adventure something we will always remember.
