Led by 25-year riding veteran and owner Emily Mitchell, Lupine Farm teaches good horsemanship to aspiring equestrians of all ages and abilities during lessons, camps, and clinics. During one-hour private riding lessons, skilled saddlers prepare rookie riders for careers as contemporary cowboys. The first half schools horse-top hitchhikers on how to groom, tack, and care for their equine escorts, and the latter half hour affords students an opportunity to ride around one of two outdoor arenas atop one of the farm’s stable of submissive steeds.
Nestled into an idyllic New England landscape, the Camden Snow Bowl's tubing hills, cross-country trails, and challenging mountain slopes entertain winter warriors of all ages and skill levels. Tracing its history back to lively community winter fests in the ‘30s, the Snow Bowl's rugged hillsides, glassy ponds, and primeval pine forests have entertained thousands of rosy-cheeked visitors over the years. If visitors make it 1,300 feet up Ragged Mountain, they’ll also be rewarded with a view of the Atlantic Ocean.
Today, the Ragged Mountain Recreation Foundation ensures that sustainable development practices help future generations enjoy the Snow Bowl's slopes, tracks, parklands, and resort areas for years to come. Adults and kids alike learn their way around the powder during skiing and snowboarding lessons, preparing them to explore the park's four chair lifts, 400-foot toboggan chute, and 850 feet of vertical ski slopes. After winter's chill dies away and the snow machines go on summer break, hikers, boaters, and other adventurers arrive at Ragged Mountain to mountain bike across rustic trails, fish in Hosmer Pond, and find cool unmatched ski gloves just lying around for free.
Sensei Kevin Webb, the head instructor at Martial Arts Institute, holds a sixth-degree black belt in goju ryu karate and a fifth-degree black belt in Okinawan kobudo. These did not come easy, and Sensei Webb has been training to this advanced level since the early '80s. Now the senior student of his master, Hiroji Kuniyoshi, Sensei Webb has been honored with the task of preserving the traditions of goju ryu here in the States.
During youth and adult classes, Webb and his team of instructors first teach the martial art's more aggressive tactics, referred to as "go". These include blocks, punches, and kicks. The instructors then teach the equally important soft aspect of their art, known as "ju" tactics, which incorporate breathing and other fluid movements. Through these lessons, the Martial Arts Institute is also giving their students the skills for further self-improvement and discipline.
