The assignment for today is to make memories in the great outdoors! Choose from one of the many outdoor outfitters for an exciting day of whitewater rafting, kayaking or lazy river tubing. Experienced guides will supply all the necessary gear and escort the group on a wide variety of trips from 2-hour excursions on the Sacandaga River to full adventures on the Hudson River Gorge. Cool off in the river pools or enjoy a picnic or BBQ on shore. If adventure on land is more your group’s style, the same outfitters can arrange for guided horseback riding or hiking on the many wooded trails that surround the Lake George Area. The neon lights of Canada Street in Lake George Village are sure to provide lively evening entertainment for kids of all ages. From pizza, ice cream and candy stores to the arcades, haunted houses and souvenir shops, there is something exciting at every corner.
Kids can experience a natural challenge and find their inner monkey at Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course.

At a length of nearly 4,000 feet, you will plummet from the top of French Mountain-over the top of the Adirondacks at a rate of 58 miles per hour!
