Silver Recreation Adventures

Silver Recreation Adventures – Join a small group of active seasoned citizens as Camp Ondessonk staff IMG_0698guide you into the forest for a 2 or 4-night mini-adventure in the Shawnee National Forest. Through the Silver Recreation Adventures program, participants will engage in either a variety of recreational activities or focus on just one. Activities include hiking, canoeing/kayaking, and horseback riding. We encourage participants who have a bike to bring it and take advantage of the nearby Tunnel Hill Trail. There will also be the option to explore nearby Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Program cost includes hands-on instruction from Camp Ondessonk Staff, a private suite in the St. Noel Center, and a delicious menu of meals designed especially for this group.  This is perfect for a single person, couple, or group of friends to have a great outdoor adventure at Camp Ondessonk and the Shawnee National Forest. Space is limited so register today to reserve a spot. For questions please contact Greg Santen at greg.santen@ondessonk.com or 618-695-2489 x 129.
