Strap family members into their life jackets and get psyched to slide down a sheer rock wall, paddle through a rarely seen part of the borough's botanical garden and hike around urban waterfalls. Yep, you're still in the Bronx. The nonprofit organization's canoe and kayak trips aren't for wusses—your kids are pretty much guaranteed to get splashed—but they're safe. Outings run May through October; most are pay-what-you-wish.
