Fall Youth Programs


Come join us in the trees, on the trails, or on the James River!

Now offering outdoor adventure programs for the fall! Are your kids looking for something to do out of the house? Sign them up for one of our fall youth programs! We have offerings for ages 6-16. All programs will have a maximum of 15 people, and will be outdoors the whole time. We will do touchless temperature checks and everyone will wash hands at the beginning of the program. Hand sanitizer will be used frequently, and masks will be worn by everyone whenever possible. If we need to cancel a day due to weather, we will notify parents by 11:00am, and will schedule a makeup day (usually extending the program by 1 week).
