Love to learn and explore in a small-group setting? These adventures offer small, personal experiences with groups of 10 to 24 participants.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Make new friends as you work together completing a challenge course, testing your strength as a lumberjack, making plaster casts of animal tracks, and honing your archery accuracy.
  • Explore a northern quaking bog — an experience many equate to walking on a giant waterbed — and learn about the special plants and animals that reside in it.
  • Experience a canoe trip on the Manitowish River, a shallow watercourse where you can see the river bottom in most places.
