Program Update: 

Due to the continuing restrictions and moving target with where the pandemic is at, as well as adjustments made within our staffing structure, we are announcing that we have modified our plans for the Fall Skills Weekend to be a 1-day program instead of a weekend, overnight program. Changes such as these are not something that we take lightly as we know that folks plan and look forward to programs such as this. 

With physical distancing and indoor spacing in regards to overnight accommodations, we will only be offering day programming until a time when the risks of COVID-19 are behind us. That said, we are very excited to run the Falls BOW mini and have adjusted the schedule to capture what seemed to be most in demand for this session.  Please take a moment to click the attached link and look at the attached schedule for the fall mini session scheduled for October 10th.
