Looking for something to do? Stronghold provides a variety of sporting equipment and activities to make your stay enjoyable.

Most equipment and games are available to guests at no charge and with no advance notice. (Please be aware that certain activities require specially trained facilitators. There are fees for those items.)

 

Archery

Our certified archery instructors teach the safety regulations of the archery range, the parts of a bow and the parts of an arrow, how to nock the arrow, aim for the bullseye, and shoot! 

 

 

Canoeing

Situated on the bank of the Rock River, Stronghold provides opportunities for river canoeing to groups of all ages. Your canoe trip could involve a visit to Oregon's iconic Blackhawk statue!
 

Disc Golf

We have recently added a 9-hole disc golf course. Bring your own discs or use ours. Course maps are available at the front desk and in the Resource Center.

 

Fire Circle

Bring your supplies for making S'mores and other delicious campfire treats at one of our fire circles! Perfect for stories, songs, or setting the mood for an evening Bible study.

 

High Ropes

Wonderful tool for developing teams and building individuals/ self confidence. Great for business teams, youth groups, and anyone who wants a meaningful experience.

Hiking

Hiking

We have 360 acres of woodland for guests who enjoy hiking. Maps are available at the front desk. You can search for David's Tower while you enjoy our meadow, trails, and hilltop prairie.

Initiatives

Another great tool for developing teamwork, communication, and strategy within a group. Initiatives are games and activities that are designed to challenge the individuals of a group to work together, using their own individual strengths, to achieve a common goal. 

 

Multiplayer Games

Bocce Ball, Badminton, Croquet, Volleyball, Basketball, Four-Square, and GaGa. GaGa is one of the fastest growing group games. Don't know how to play? No problem, we have directions and balls available to use in our new GaGa Pit.

 

Leap of Faith

This challenge course activity challenges the individual to climb to high heights and reach for the prize…literally!  Participants are connected to a dynamic belay system as they climb this 32 foot pole and then jump for a trapeze.  It’s a test of faith whose rewards are immeasurable.

 

Swimming

Cool off after a long day of activities in our swimming pool. With pool volleyball, noodles, and inflatables pool time is a splash! Requires lifeguard staff, please schedule in advance.
