  • Geocaching - Can you locate caches located at the heights? 
  • Blacksmithing - Looking for a souvenir of your time at the heights? Then the blacksmith shop is the place for you!
  • Maple Sugaring - Just Added! The sap to still running so you can hike to one of the ends of the camp and see a sugar shack in operation. This was very popular in Februray so plan to join in!
  • Snow Shoeing - If the current snow pack survives this week's weather, we will be offering snow shoeing again (for the last time this season?).
