Wilderness Adventure Family Fun Day FREE EVENT @ Wilderness Adventure at Eagles Landing
Apr 29 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Family Fun Day

April 29th from 10 am to 5 pm

Come see what we’re all about!

Free Zip Lining, Climbing Wall, Canoeing and Paddleboarding on the pond, hiking, yard games and more will be available throughout the day for Families to come out and experience some of the best parts of Wilderness Adventure: Our amazing setting in the highlands of Craig County, Our exciting activities, and the friendly and outgoing WA Staff who make every experience unforgettable!

This is the only day all year when activities are FREE and NO reservations are required!  It’s a very popular event so get here early!

Plan Ahead & Prepare – Get the most out of Family Fun Day

  • Plan to arrive mid-morning to mid-afternoon (10am to about 2pm) to ensure you have enough time to check-in, do the activities you want, and have time to wander Base Camp to your heart’s content.  You may not check in until 9:30, and activities won’t start until 10.
  • Pack water bottles, sunscreen, comfortable socks and closed-toed athletic shoes for Zip Line & Hiking, and the Climbing Wall.  Thinking of venturing into the pond for a turn in a canoe or a paddleboard?  Pack water shoes and clothes that can get wet–our Bath House is a great place to change and dry off before and after!
  • For those of you who may be thinking of bringing your entire scout pack, a full softball team, or any other large group: You’re more than welcome, but please remember that anyone under 18 must be accompanied by their legal guardian in order to participate in activities.  We also recommend that you split up and enjoy the day in groups of less than 8 — this will help us keep a good flow at each activity.
