Notes about Activities

Boating:

Rowboats and Canoes- 5th grade to use

Kayaks-7th grade to use

Sailing- 7th grade and previous experience to use

*If anyone in a boat is below the above grades, a person age 16 or older must be in the boat

*Lifejackets are required to be worn at all times while in a boat.  We have boundaries on the lake marked with buoys and use a flag to call boats in.

*If persons bring their own boats (I know some people bring kayaks)- They can boat at any time and are not under Camp Mack supervision or rules (Waubee is a public lake)


Climbing Tower: (We did have a person call about family day seeing if their 5 year old can climb)

*Zip Line will NOT be open

*Minimum age of 8 *May be able to do younger but the harness and helmet need to fit them properly


Flying Squirrel:

*Minimum age of 8 (Once again, the harness and helmet must fit them properly)
