Cuscowilla offering families new upcoming programs

Cuscowilla Nature and Retreat Center is offering two new programs for residents ages 10 and up.

The center will kick off its Introduction to Archery class on Feb. 10 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. for those who want to try out the sport or simply hone their skills, while getting a better understanding of equipment and safety.
The class is $25 for adults and $15 for those 10-17. Children participating in the class must be accompanied by an adult who isn’t required to participate.

The center is also offering a Family Camp Out event on April 5-7 for those who want to experience all Cuscowilla has to offer. Accommodations include a half cabin for families or groups of up to six people. The cabins include air conditioning, heat and full bathrooms. Available activities for the three-day adventure include walking trails, fishing, kayaking, campfires and grilling. 

The cost for the Camp Out is $150 each night.

"Both programs are a great way to learn new skills, enjoy the outdoors and explore all that Cuscowilla has to offer,” said Cuscowilla Manager Jamie Bass.
