TESTIMONIALS

As my son says, "I don't know what I'd do all summer without Abenaki". Incredible coaching staff and family-friendly atmosphere. Paddling on your own clean and private lake, swimming lessons, fun days, dances, and other special events. Tucked away in the Dartmouth suburbs, a little piece of summer heaven. You won't believe how much your kids will grow and take on new challenges. Looking forward to our eighth season!
