A wide game is a whole camp challenge with teams compete to win an objective. The game is played in a large area, such as a field, or woodland. Common games include capture the flag and team variants of tag, or strategy games like Gold Rush.

Team games are normally short games where team compete against each other. Games are normally  quick and include grab ball, nuke-em,  clear the decks, giants wizards and dwarfs and splat.

 

Team challenges are a mix of the above games but could in include other indoor and outdoor initiative challenges such as cane lower, ravine crossing, human knot, paper tower, red and white.

A simple, straightforward and competitive sport. Similar to golf but with specially made frisbee discs thrown towards metal baskets designed to catch it. The aim is to throw it in as few throws as possible.

Skiing is the sport for adrenaline seekers, nature lovers and travellers. You can learn to ski on our dry ski slope and then take your newly learned skills all over the world. Whether you want to gently take in the views, race down the slope or constantly challenge yourself, skiing is for you.

 

With a board strapped to two feet, snowboarding has roots in surfing and skateboarding. Racing down the slope, feeling free and jumping through the air, everyone should try snowboarding at least once!

 

Start off with kneeling down and then before you know it you'll be an expert standing, jumping and playing around on your large inflated paddle board. Awesome fun!
