If you love trying new things, meeting new people and have an adventurous spirit, here is your chance to try a new and unique activity each week. Past activities include indoor rock climbing, lacrosse, rugby, boxing and more. The most exciting part is that you don’t know which activity you are participating in until you arrive! Every activity is geared to the complete beginner, so no experience is necessary and you don’t need to have the fitness level of an athlete to participate. The co-ordinator will let you know one day in advance how to dress and what to bring, but everything else is a surprise. Men and women welcome! Partner not required.
