February 1, 2019   Fly Tying Classes Begin

    Kayaking Instruction

Our instructor, Gunter Spilhaus, is a member of the American Canoe Association (ACA) with a Level 3 Coastal Kayak instructor certification, and is also a U.S. Coast Guard Captain. Gunter was born and raised in Africa and spent many years paddling sea kayaks and surf skis on the coastal waters around Cape Town. He started his paddling career as a guide on the major rivers in Southern Africa. He led multi-day expedition canoe trips, whitewater-rafting trips and also worked as safety kayak guide on the major rivers in South Africa.

10 years ago Gunter moved to the US with his wife and daughter and they settled in the Hudson Valley. He spends his winters running the events team at Hunter Mountain and his summers running his adventure-based event management company, which includes mountain biking, kayaking, teambuilding events and sailing.

Year-Round   TechnoHUNT Interactive Indoor Archery

Our TechnoHUNT interactive indoor archery range is simulated archery hunting at its best.  The system features high-definition hunting scenarios and interactive archery target shooting.  TechnoHUNT is fun for recreational and experienced hunting archers!  We also have certified instructors, leagues and competition events. Kenco is a place to associate with the hundreds of men, women, and children who have found archery to be an important part of their lives.  Reservations are suggested, as the range can get busy at peak times.  To find out more click here!
