A dragon boat team consists of 10 or 20 paddlers sitting two abreast, plus a Cox who steers the dragon boat from the rear and a drummer who sits at the front. The team works in unison to propel the boat forward from a standing start, the aim being to reach the finish line in the fastest time.
We are able to conduct Intro to Dragon Boat or Helmsman Course.
A kayak is a low-to-the-water, canoe-like boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. Most kayaks have closed decks, although sit-on-top and inflatable kayaks are growing in popularity as well.
Courses we conduct range from Kayak Orientation, 1 Star - 3 Star Courses, Roll clinics, etc.
An abseil (meaning 'to rope down'), also called a rappel after its French name, is a controlled descent of a vertical drop, such as a rock face, using a rope. Climbers use this technique when a cliff or slope is too steep and/or dangerous to descend without protection.
We are able to conduct an Introduction to Abseil or Abseil Proficiency Course Level 1 & 2.
Sport climbing is a form of rock climbing that relies on permanent anchors fixed to the rock for protection. This is in contrast to traditional climbing where climbers must place removable protection as they climb.
We are able to conduct an Intro to Sports Climbing or Sports Climbing level 1 & 2.

The DISC profile is a non-judgemental tool used for discussion of people's behavioral differences. If you participate in a DiSC program, you'll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a detailed report about your personality and behaviors.
The DISC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and adapt their behaviors with others - within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other relationships.
