ARX XCEL includes 6 additional weeknight hours of ARX navigation training, all 6 2017 spring X-League races, and entry to all Dontgetlost races, priority for ARK summer camp counsellor positions and the opportunity to participate in the travel squad (out-of-province adventure travel that combines national/international racing, training camps and many other adventure activities).



ARX XCEL costs $90 (in addition to the regular ARX program) for the Spring 2017 season.
