Dave and and Marie Tubby know how to instill children with a love of the outdoors: they've been doing it for nearly 40 years. On the lush, 100-acre expanse that makes up Frontier Trails, the Tubby family and their staff help kids built confidence, feel challenged, and even discover untapped talents through a range of enriching activities. Central to this goal is Frontier Trails Camp, where caring and conscientious counselors maintain a 1:4 staff-to-camper ratio as they lead children through endeavors as adventurous as trail rides and kayak trips and as simple as campfires and sing alongs. Groups can enjoy nature in smaller doses as well. School trips mix up the academic day with fun and educational outdoor activities, and horseback riding trips let groups get up close and personal with equines without the commitment of buying their own horse or marrying into an all-horse family.
