A great way to start the day is by getting active! Join Nancy at 9:45 AM at the Treehouse Wellness Center for a morning Gentle Yoga session. Open to all ages and experience levels, Nancy will help you greet the day as she guides you through a series of gentle stretches and breath work. We also have the Short Game Golf Clinic at 8:00 AM for you early birdies! Not a golfer? Catch our tennis pros teaching you all the essential techniques at their 10:00 AM Adult Tennis Clinic. Then you can put those skills to work at the 11:00 AM Tennis Round Robin!
If you’re looking to explore a bit more, join Colton for a 10:00 AM Adirondack Hike! You’ll boat across the lake to the largest state park in the US, and Colton will take you on a moderate hike with beautiful views and interesting fauna sightings.

Speaking of water, we have Megan Weaver of 200Lemons on property to teach us the magic of watercolor painting! Sign up for her 10:30 AM or 4:00 PM Watercolor Workshop (or both!) with the Concierge, and meet her in the Club Room. She’ll walk you through technique exercises in preparation and provide tips on developing a unique painting style, then get you started on your own vacation masterpiece!
After lunch get some more swings in on the courts or the greens! There’s the 1:00 PM Full Swing Golf Clinic, the 1:30 PM Tiny Tots Tennis Clinic (for those aged 5 and under), or the 2:30 PM Junior Tennis Clinic! Also be sure to catch the tennis pros in an Exhibition Match at the clay courts at 4:00 PM!
