Special Events

For Girls, Mothers & Daughters, Families & More. From Paddle Boarding & Art, To Dancing and Public Speaking. Escape the Ordinary.

Our Special Events encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, try new things and challenge yourself.  And for parents, what better way to be a role model than to do those things in front of your child. They love to see you have fun, be silly and even make mistakes.
