Thank you SO MUCH for offering this event. My daughter…was absolutely euphoric when we picked her up! She jabbered nonstop on the way home about all the things she had done/learned (climbing 70 feet up the mast was a highlight) and she immediately asked if she could go again next Saturday.I would say the morning was a success!

“…I had a fantastic time it was one of the best moments in my whole entire life I learned a lot of things that I didn’t really think I was able to do and everyone was so generous and patient and it was a very cool experience”
