Thank you to everyone who joined us at the AAAdventure Camps over November throughout the country! We were so excited to have 85 attendees and reconnect after so many months either in lockdown or with limited in-person events.
Activities included archery giant swing, high ropes, Vertical challenge, canoeing, maze escapes, board games, table tennis, a zoo visit, swimming, time at the beach, lazer tag.
These events could not have been run without the generous support of the AAAF volunteers. A big shout out to all the AAAF Committee.
