From traditional to modern games and sports there is something appealing for every group.

Gaga Ball Pits

Gaga Ball is the latest form of dodgeball that is sweeping the nation. This game is played in an octagonal pit, and combines running, jumping, and hitting the ball - trying to get your opponents out by attempting to hit them below the knees (or waist, whichever you want to play). There are 4 different Gaga Ball Pits around camp.

Disc Golf Course

Disc Golf is a game in which individual players throw a flying disc, or “frisbee”, into a basket or at a target. The form of play is very similar to a normal round of golf. Each hole has a designated “tee” or starting point, and a “basket” or “target”, similar to a hole in golf. Latham Springs offers a 12 hole signature course with various basket locations and a variety of shapes.  For groups attending a Latham retreat or event, our course may be used without additional cost. We also offer the course to players not attending a retreat or event for a minimal fee. All players are welcome to either bring their own discs (frisbees) or check out discs at the office, free of charge, along with scorecards and maps.

Ropes Challenge Course

Select from low ropes or high ropes course challenge activities. The low ropes course features six unique obstacle challenge elements requiring determination, strategy, and teamwork. Our high course revolves around a 35 ft tower providing a rock climbing wall, two three hundred foot zip lines, dual incline log, and a multi-vine cable walk, A ropes challenge course is great to build teams with spiritual applications.

Giant Swing

You and two other participants are harnessed up and lifted to the top of the swing. From there, participants release the swing and are taken for the ride of a lifetime.

This is very similar to paintball except you shoot 2″ diameter foam "nerf” style balls. Lots of fun and a great option for both kids and adults. As many as 20 people can play in the course at one time.
