Premium Recreation

Looking for a little more excitement? Add Premium Recreation to your event. While all recreation activities are included in every retreat package, some require minimal charges for staffing.  Event planners, please note that since some setup and orientation is necessary, all activities do require advanced scheduling with your Conference Services coordinator.

Rock Climbing

Pine Creek has two rock climbing options for your group; the climbing wall and the bouldering wall. The climbing wall has 3 lanes, each with different grades and rock placements, allowing for varied degrees of difficulty and unique climbing experiences. The wall uses auto-belay systems that are compatible with children, youth, and adults. The bouldering wall is next to the climbing wall and a great option for those participants that are hesitant of heights. It’s also a great activity to keep participants entertained while they wait for their turn at the climbing wall. Both are located in the Activity Center and both are great options to add on with other basic recreation activities available in the Activity Center.

Cost: $100/hour

 

Zip Line

Zip Lines are taking over! And for good reason; they can be a great activity for both youth and adult groups. Zip Lines bring teams together. Zip lines can be a true team building experience as you navigate to the loading platform and take that first step off. Zip Lines should not be a solo experience that an individual faces alone. Zip Lines, like all of our adventure recreation, is meant to be experienced and accomplished together with your team, group, or family. Groups support and encourage one another as they take that leap of faith and begin their soaring adventure. And groups are there to cheer and congratulate one another as they zip into the landing zone feeling empowered by the activity.

Zip Lines at Pine Creek are not meant to break the bank. We want to be able to offer unique, life-changing activities for every budget. Our mission is providing affordable off-site ministry events! Our zip lines can be packaged together to coincide with a team building program, meaning groups can still schedule their day of adventure recreation programs without missing out on the adrenaline filled activity; all at one simple price per person.

Cost: $15/person (2 lines)

 

Team Building

The group initiatives course is a series of low-to-the-ground challenges that focus specifically on team development through planning and problem-solving. The attempts and results in each group are creative, fun, and helpful in building group cohesiveness. Challenges are physical, but not athletic. Challenges are intellectual, but not rocket science. All challenges are team-oriented. Success or failure is not based on speed or skill, but on developing as a team. Following each challenge, staff facilitate group discussion on how the challenge relates to everyday life. The nature and focus of the group determines the direction of the discussion. Some groups benefit from direct questioning, while other groups may simply assign a letter grade to their level of communication. Whatever the form of discussion, participants leave the activity having reflected on their role in the experience.

Cost: $15/person
