Adult Kayaking Lessons

Kayaking at Greenwell is not just for kids! We love taking nature lovers of all ages out onto the water. Whether you want to do some early morning tidewater marsh exploration with your nature club or want to bring your closest friends or family members on a relaxing field trip, we can help! All of our adult kayaking lessons and trips include a 30-minute safety lesson and an American Canoe and Kayak Association certified kayak instructor to lead you along the shores of the Patuxent River. We provide; kayaks, life jackets, and paddles. Just bring a bottle of water and wear sunscreen. No previous experience required!

Equine Experiences

Greenwell’s horses are always a hit, but many people do not know about the wide range of adult equestrian programs we offer to groups throughout the year. From organized trail rides and carriage rides to non-riding horse-centered programs, we can work with your organization, club or friends/family group to plan a day you will all remember. Check out our equestrian programs page for pricing and details or contact us today to schedule a custom field trip.
