Our Core Programming, or as we like to say, our sweet spot, is helping families with middle and high school students build and strengthen their relationships while learning lifelong recreation skills and intentional relationship building skills, PACD. Our programming is structured in 12 to 15-week sessions in the fall and spring and runs in three-week Ventures. A Venture focuses on one traditional outdoor recreation activity and is a minimum of two hours in length. Activities include fly fishing, spin fishing, fly tying, archery, shooting sports, camping and survival, and orienteering. The programs are run in the evening, usually between 5:30 and 7:30, and require that a parent or significant adult participate with each youth attending. We also provide trained mentors to work with a parent who has multiple students attending or when a parent is unable to attend regularly.
