It's time for an Adventure!
An adventure can start in the backyard with a fire and a group of friends sharing stories. It can also be a journey into the woods or a campground where fire brings warmth, light, and means of survival. Mickwick Adventurers are a group of people that enjoy exploring the natural world from the bush to the backyard. They are stewards of Mother Nature and master fire-makers. Meet our 2020 Adventurers!
