Resevation details

With most local schools wrapping up at some point this week and with active summer camps being closed for the Juneteenth holiday on Wednesday, this full day adventure is a perfect outdoor experience for your kids after they are done with the school year and transitioning into summer programs that start the following week.  We need a minimum of six students enrolled to run the trips, so please reply to this email with your interest as soon as possible so we can secure the dates and move forward!  When we have the requisite number of students, we will send a follow-up email with a paylink and waivers for completion.
Thank you for your support of Guineafowl's outdoor programming for kids, and I hope to be running several partner trips with Adventure East in the future if you miss out on these two dates, but, I really hope one of these two dates work for your kids to join us!  Please help us spread the word by sharing this trip with your kids' friends as well, we cap out at 11 per day, and we would love to fill them both out!
