Special notes about some of our unique activities:

 

Driver’s Ed: Driver’s Ed offers children the unique opportunity of learning how to drive on a special golf cart. The golf cart travels a maximum of 5 kms an hour around special track. An instructor sits right next to the child to supervise and assist campers from grades one and up, instructing them on how to handle a steering wheel, judge distances and follow safety rules.

 

Biking: Campers are first introduced to biking on a grassy course and the instructors will teach your child how to ride a bike if they don't know how to do so already. Once the child feels comfortable on the bike, they will move to a more challenging bike path and then a ride around the camp.  Helmets are provided by the camp.
