DIRO Outdoors Demo Days

 PowerUp outdoors with DIRO Outdoors Demo Days! It's a fun and easy way for kids and families to move more while trying something new outdoors!

Demo Days allow you to experience firsthand outdoor activities to determine if it's right for you.  DIRO Outdoors design these activities with your demanding schedule in mind.  Short enough so you don't spend hours trying something that isn't for you but long enough to get a good understanding of the activity, its physical requirements and its fun factor.  

Come on out, bring a friend or family, and give it a try!
