Children entering grades 6-8 in Fall 2018

This week we will explore all things aquatic while learning the basics of getting around on the water using a variety of watercraft like canoes, kayaks, and river rafts. We’ll explore different aquatic habitats as we retrace the path that water takes from the mountains to the Bay – in reverse. The last 2 days will be an overnight adventure to western Maryland - including tubing on Antietam Creek and rafting on the Shenandoah River. Come prepared to get WET and have fun!
