We are offering the following activities to choose from:

  • Mountain biking in the Gordon Woods in Wenham
  • Canoeing on Chebacco Lake 
  • Kayaking on Chebacco Lake

Based on the gear sizes that we have, the minimum recommended age for participants is 10. If you have a younger child that wants to participate, please and we can see if we are able to accommodate you.
