Transported After School
Archery, Adventure, Games & Art

We pick kids up from their school for hands-on afternoon activities & adventure!

Each day kids choose an adventure with their friends! They can shoot archery, whittle, cook outdoors, explore nature, play games, and more.

You can also add-on our Arts Studio or Martial Arts classes. At the end of the day, you pick them up. We also offer options for you to transport your child to Trackers.

Real Skills

Trackers takes learning and playing further. Our classes teach real skills. Kids can shoot archery, do ceramics and blacksmithing, or track wildlife while exploring nearby parks.
