By offering a variety of programs, we strive to support your goals while you are here at Tall Timbers. We understand you could have chosen to go anywhere, but you have chosen to trust us with your stay. We work with your group to design games and activities that complement the goals and themes for your retreat. Our desire is to offer fresh new ways where you as an individual and group can reflect and grow spiritually, corporately, and individually. We can also design any other out-of-the-box activity that we do not specifically offer. Our recreation team has created scavenger hunts, geocaching, and other things to support a group’s theme. Call our office to set up a day activity, to add these activities to your retreat schedule, or to find out about pricing.
Problem solving, teamwork, communication, and learning how to set and work towards goals are at the heart of our low rope elements. The term “ropes” is used because of the history around these activities.
High elements focus on individual skill and challenge. An individual is often challenged to face their fears and learn to trust. Our high ropes course is built on poles about 30 feet in the air. All participants are supported with harnesses, safety ropes and helmets at all times.
This crazy activity will get your heart racing! For older youth and adults only. (we recommend junior high and up) Armed with a face mask and bow & arrow (foam tips, not arrows!), you shoot out the other team or shoot out their targets while dodging flying arrows on a playing field.
This is a fun-for-all-ages competitive game where groups are split into teams. Under the supervision of our referee the groups shoot soft golf ball sized balls at each other in a forty by seventy-five foot arena with barricades to hide behind.
Our staff will guide groups on a variety of night hike activities specifically designed to support and enhance whatever topic the group is addressing while at Tall Timbers. We utilize flashlights and glow sticks along the trails and wind up at a bonfire by the lake.
By using the experiential learning process of learning by doing and gaining experiences through scenarios, we lead groups on an adventure and encounter various obstacles around the beautiful spring fed twelve acre lake.
