Hear what folks are saying!

I was very impressed with all the peronnel at RIDGE Wilderness Adventures. They took time to teach all of our students no matter what level of outdoor exerience each child had. At the end of the day everyone was more confident on the water. The happy smiling faces all round was the proof in the pudding! A huge thanks to Dave and Crew. We will definitely come again.
