Flax Pond Adventure Program

About the Program...

Flax Pond is an “Adventure Program” where the children learn new skills and teamwork while facing exciting challenges. Each year the Adventure Program evolves to meet the needs of the community and the participants of the program.
The children participate in a variety of daily activities such as kayaking, canoeing, archery, swimming in the fresh water kettle pond, sports, arts & crafts, wellness programs, a low elements initiatives area, and a nature program with live animals. The program operates every day rain or shine.
