    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is an extremely fun atmosphere with a crew of 4-7 young adults each summer. We have miles of forested trails, waterfalls, lakefront property and unbeatable scenery. Very positive, upbeat and fun environment. There is so much to learn here, from Roping to Barrel Racing to loading a Pack horse to building a shed. We are happy to share our knowledge with anyone keen to learn :)!
