took my son's there for introductory skeet shooting. Very well done, very organized. A little weak on safety, which surprised me. But an excellent introduction.

You can't go wrong with this class! A $20 registration fee will get you a three-hour lesson and use of the LL Bean snowshoe equipment, and two instructors devoting their time to less than 15 course participants! LL Bean provides a shuttle bus to take course participants to their very beautiful, private property, the Fogg Farm, for the lesson. This... More

My husband and I enjoyed the 2-hour Paddleboard class taught by John M and Barb D. After gathering at the flagship store, we boarded a small bus with 8 others and were taken to a river launch a few miles away. John and Barb were thorough and patient as we attempted to find our "water legs". Within minutes, most of... More

Took the clay shooting class with my fiancée. Neither of us had ever shot before. The instructors were great at keeping everyone safe and teaching us to shoot. Really unique experience. Would highly recommend.

None of us had shot before but we were all able to hit... More

We went to the discovery school and shoot clay targets. We had a group of experienced and inexperienced shooters and our guides were a great help. We had a good time and got to shoot targets that came from two different directions. Guns, ammo, targets, eye protection, and ear protection were all included. Our guides were not only extremely helpful,... More
