  •  There are 100’s of different activities offered throughout the summer including: Rock Climbing, Paddle boarding, Paint-balling, Rafting, Archery, Robotics, Canoeing, Mountain Biking, Fishing, Rockets, Paintchery, Marmot Tag, Skateboarding, Camping, Small animals, Sportz, Arts & Crafts, Tenkara Fly Fishing, and 100’s more.  
  •  Registration options include punch passes (pick and choose what days throughout the summer you would like to attend) and week-long enrollment.  
  • Campouts depart every Friday and tend to fill up quickly, so reserving a space for those ahead of time is important
