Event details

I spy with my little eye a new way to paddle this summer! As the sun sets, enjoy a sensory experience on the waters of Lake Chaminwood. Take part in a series of challenges to discover what you can find along the nooks and crannies of the lake. You will need to focus your eyes, ears and fingers to succeed. We will end our night with a mystery task that will engage your taste buds.
