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.

Nations


Kayaking is a camper's favorite! Children are grouped together by similar school grade level and given a "Nation" title:

Pioneers are first and second graders (Must be six before August 31)

Trail Blazers are third and fourth graders

Quest Seekers are fifth and sixth graders

Explorers are seventh and eighth graders and ninth graders

*These are based on what grade they will be entering in September
