We are hunters, and adventure is our game. We are unstoppable, and you are our prey. Take aim and bring ‘em down, before they get you!
You may only be a few feet off the ground, but that doesn’t make it easy. You’ll need balance, footwork, and strategy to beat our bouldering wall!
The stars never looked prettier. The moon never looked brighter. The s’mores never tasted sweeter. Get outside and experience life like no other in God’s beautiful creation.
Maybe you want the latest shirt, or a new comfy hoodie. Maybe you need a bigger coffee mug, or a fresh new water bottle to cover with stickers. Whatever the occasion, this stuff is the best!
When you’re in the land of coffee, you drink a lot of coffee. It’s okay, we do too. Come enjoy a nice, warm atmosphere in our Mountaintop Coffee Shop and grab a cup!
Dodgeball is better when you glow in the dark...
Fuzzy wristbands, Keds, and sliding sideways on a Big Wheel made for some serious street cred back in the day. Well, we've amped it up.
Guaranteed to break the ice. This is camp-olympics! From scavenger hunts to more inventive contests, you're sure to make a few new friends along the way.
Ga-ga wha? Trust us, it's not for babies. Part dodge ball, part tag and part king of the hill, it takes action to another level. Stay with it. Rule the octagon!
Get outside and into the beautiful nature God created for us. There are miles of trails through our dense forest that any adventurer will enjoy!
Ever wonder what it’s like to fly through the trees? Harness up and get ready to soar!
Your heart pounds as you overcome your nerves and step off the edge. What were you thinking? Total focus. Step by step. Now you're down, confident. Again!
Bring it on. Serve it up. Spike, slam, wham, attack - Let your competitive spirit take over. You'll need it. Dig, set, spin, spike! Leave the campfire for day's end.
There’s nothing normal about this. You’re jumping out of a perfectly good tree. One of the biggest trees on camp, at that. Harness up, clip in, and get ready to fly!
It’s chilly outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t swim! Our heated, indoor pool is perfect for every season!
Are you agile enough to get across? Use that ninja skill of yours and see if you’re among the few to make it to the other side.
3D Climbing Wall
Because climbing regular holds was too easy. Climb the crane, or maybe the logging truck? Which path will you choose?
Indoor Rock Wall
Are you a climbing purist? Want to send it on a more traditional route? We’ve got you covered. Chalk up and hit the wall.
Some of us wish we were gladiators. Take up your sword and challenge your friends in this epic team fight!
Low Elements - Mountaintops
The floor is lava! Work together as a team to get everyone to safety in this group development challenge.
Low Elements - 3D Web
For those who thought our 2D web wasn’t enough of a challenge. This will test your group decision-making on a whole new level!
Low Elements - Labyrinth
Remember that game on your phone where you guide the ball through the maze? It’s that, life-sized!
Low Elements - 2D Web
You’ve got one goal: get to the other side. Your team has limited resources and just enough hands. Work together to figure out how to traverse the web with this group development challenge!
Leap of Faith
Your heart is pounding. You look down off the platform and see your team holding on to your rope. All that’s left is to jump. Do you take the leap?
Think you can climb to the top of this suspended challenge course? What about if you’re attached to a friend? What about two friends? Let’s see you beat our record. Hint: it’s under a minute.
Explore high in the trees with this suspended walkway. Whatever you do, don’t look down!
No need to paddle on your own. Why not invite your whole crew on board? Gather up your mates and get ready to hit the water!
Enjoy a day in the sun, rafting down the Green River rapids with this off-site activity!
Blacklight Mini Golf
All the perks of putt-putt, glowing in the dark! See how many strokes it takes you to complete this illuminated course!
Four squares isn’t enough. Why not make it nine? Why not have it in the air? Let’s see how long you can hold the top spot.
