It’s New and You’ll Love it! PEO’s Family Adventure Tours!

Positive Energy Outdoors is rolling out a new option for families.  Why?  Our organization welcomes families and groups and we make it a priority to provide the highest quality outdoor adventures regardless of ability and for practically all ages.

We’re introducing our Family Adventure Tours.  These include a Family Kayak Tour, Family Canoe Tour, Family Climbing Tour, and a Family Wagon ride.  Those are for our summer adventures season.  Coming up in the winter, we’ll be offering our Family Dog Sledding Tour.  What’s also cool about these tours is the optional add-on of a Family Sled Dog Kennel Tour!

All of these options will be rolled out on our official website this week, but we’re letting you get a jump on booking right now with this blog post!  What’s in store?  Read on for the details!
