Excellent facility with many options - esp oriented to outdoor adventure/nature (whitewater rafting, rock wall and rock climbing, hiking, campfire, etc.). However, it’s a bit far for PG and most of the activities are daytime activities.  Would make a marvelous Senior Trip!!

 

Monmouth University + Beach bonfire [would need to get permit. Longbranch , the nearest beach town, apparently offers them].

Many seniors did not receive the Gift as not all visited the Photo Booth

ERROR: These 2 items should have been combined and handed at the same time

Venue Set Up: Consider how big the Class is and how many are attending. Keep all activities centered around a focus central staging area to encourage participation and make the event look like a "Fair".

Keep kids in close proximity with one another to create infectious enthusiasm
