"The afternoon adventures program is amazing. My child is stronger physically, but also more in touch with nature, and more upbeat, positive, and engaged at home and school, since she started this class. She sleeps better and bedtime is easier. Everything you read about "Nature Deficit Disorder" is true. And when you really immerse a kid in nature, with guides who are truly knowledgeable, that's when the magic happens. These guides are not just babysitters for my kids, they are passionate educators about water sports, nature, history, and more." - Lisa O. Wilmette, IL
