It's time to have some fun at the cottage...

We have two great events coming up this summer for kids of all ages!

Sunday August 4th @ 9:30 registration, please join us for our 5th Annual Arr'some Regatta. This is our most popular event.  We'll have challenges on land and on water plus lots of goodies for all the kids. A hot dog lunch will follow. Older kids are invited to come to the second location with a kayak for water polo. Ask us if you need to borrow one. 

Please order your free t-shirts below (by July 2nd) or sign up to volunteer. We need volunteers for pre-planning and construction and at the event. See our website for details. Parking available at 37 Fire Route 85 (starting point).

Volunteers: We need volunteers to help with the cooking of hotdogs and serving food at the Regatta.  Also, we need volunteers at Movie Night to make popcorn. We can give you a letter for your high school volunteer hours.

NEW this year at the Regatta: coffee & timbits from 10am-11am, hotdogs from 11am - noon.  Ice cream bars after the Thank You photo is taken.

Saturday August 31st @ 7:30pm, please join us for our Outdoor Movie Night. We'll have kids pre-movie, popcorn and the main attraction - Hook. See our website for more details. Bring your own chairs and drinks. Parking available at 451 Philrick Drive - event location.

we just knew we were having fun!"
