We really enjoyed our adventure, canoeing to Wildcat Island. Our instructor made everyone feel at ease (including my very nervous 7 year old). We sang songs, built dens and hoisted a pirate flag. If we get to the Lakes again we will definately book in...More

most children are aged between 7 and 13 but it does depend on the child and what sort of things the family are use to doing. The time of year is also a factor. We have also take 5 year olds and 70 year olds but not often.
