There are a lot of exciting things on the horizon for Canteen Destiny in 2017, but one of them is becoming a reality in less than a month! We're happy to announce that on June 1st, we will be introducing Archery Ag Tag to the farm.
Did you know that the first ever game of this type of combat archery was played just 6 years ago, in 2011? It's an up-and-coming sport that is growing in popularity. Most facilities for playing these types of bow-and-arrow based games can be found in bigger cities, such as Toronto, Brampton, and the surroundings areas. We're proud to bring the first ever facility to Dundas and the Hamilton area!
Want to hear another fun fact? Bubble Soccer, which we will also have available at the farm, was originally only played as a joke! What two friends in Norway (also in 2011, good year apparently) invented in jest, turned into a fun, popular new sport. It's played essentially the same as "normal" soccer, but each players body is encased in a large inflated plastic bubble, which makes movement more difficult, and much, much funnier. It's totally safe, and generally when people do collide, or someone falls over, the giant cushion on their body breaks their fall.
No experience is required to play either Archery Ag Tag or Bubble Soccer. Both just require a certain amount of willingness to look a little funny, and a spirit of excitement and adventure! Through the months of June, July, and August, we will be offering both archery and soccer separately, or in conjunction with each other, as well as using them as fun, team building tools for our summer day camps. Be sure to check out our Archery Ag Tag tab on the website for all of the information you'll need to successfully join the craze. While you're at it, check out our camps for teens too!
Oh wait, I almost forgot the best part. Can't forget this. Not only do you get to come for a fun-filled, action-packed, combat-heavy, team building, family friendly, laughter inducing day on a beautiful organic farm, 50% (yes I said 50%) of what you pay for the time, equipment, and any
other bells and whistles you choose, goes directly towards missions. Each of the lovely facilitators you meet on and off the field are volunteering their time as a fundraiser for a missions trip they will be able to attend later in the year. Now I'd say that's a pretty stellar deal for both of you.
I'll quit gabbing on now, and in closing just say:
See you on the field.
