At 8:00 AM Colton will be leading a brisk Button Point Jog, so sign up and meet him at the front of the Lodge to start your day on the right foot! We also have a 9:45 AM Core Barre class with Nancy, the perfect total body workout that sculpts long, lean muscles.
Calling all gardeners and nature lovers! This morning at 10:00 AM we will be hosting a Garden Tour through our beautiful campus!

We have a range of activities offered on the lake for this afternoon! Meet April for a 2:00 PM Paddle Board Yoga class! Put your balance to the ultimate test in this 45-minute session. We recommend paddle boarders with experience but all levels of yogis are welcome! At 2:30 PM, join Colton for a Palisades Kayak Trek! This event is recommended for experienced paddlers, as you are sure to get that heartrate up and arm muscles burning making your way across Lake Champlain to the Palisades cliffs!
