Now this is how you celebrate a brand new season!
This spring is arriving in style with a throwback to the lakeside days of summer camp — yes, even for those of us who may think we’re a little too old for bunk beds, smores, and awesome activities.
- Six adventurers will get paid to travel in an epic experiment this summer
- This stunning sunflower maze needs to be on your 2019 bucket list
- Calgary to see $101 million transit investment from province
Cabin Party is a two-day, adults-only event being held to raise money for Survive and Thrive — a program that helps young adult cancer survivors live their best lives — and will take place this April. The event is expected to feature a wide variety of epic adventures, delicious drinks, and not a single whining kid in sight!
Signing up with run you $150 (though booze and gambling is extra), with proceeds going directly to the cancer survivors.
Cabin Party will be held at Camp Kindle, which is located one and a half hours northwest of Calgary. The camp features flushable toilets, sky-high activities, and the opportunity to bunk with either your buddies or some soon-to-be-friends!
Possible activities include a high ropes course, the craft cabin, a 100-foot swing, a nature hike, group games, ziplining, extreme bocce, catapults, archery, dodgeball, yoga, a climbing wall, and a bonfire.
When you register in the morning you’ll sign up for three activities, though there are also a few that everyone will be able to participate in.
