Teams can be up to 5 members.  You can have one youth (ages 5-12) and one adult (18+) or you can have 2-4 youths with 1 adult.  You choose!  Due to having multiple people on a team, registration is available at the Community Center or via mail.  Cost is $15 per team member (FREE for 18+ team member).  Register now and receive $5 off per team member!  Registration includes Kids Adventure T-shirt and refreshments.
