3 Tier - 24 element high Ropes course

Built in the fall of 2014, this High Ropes Course is meant to challenge all participents mentally and physically.  You won't find a more advanced course in the surrounding areas.

800 foot dual Zip line

This Zip line is attached to the 52 foot climbing wall and extends over a natural meadow.

65 foot giant swing

One brave soul is strapped into a full-body harness and gets hoisted into the air by a pull-team to pull a rip cord and go flying.

Group challenge course

The Group Challenge Course (GCC) is a series of initiatives, puzzles and events that are designed to challenge a group to confront the ways and means of how they function as a group.  Issues of cooperation, teamwork, communication, trust, leadership, roles, decision making, conflict resolution, planning, defining success/failure, evaluation, and celebration can all be addressed on the course. 

Archery

Krislund teaches the skills of archery using recurve bows and a private archery range.

Laser Tag

Krislund is now offering laser tag. This is a great way to build teamwork and work on communication skills. Check out the laser tag page under Summer Camp for more information.

Black light Dodge ball

This event is the perfect indoor activity! Great for birthday parties, family reunions and youth groups. Come dressed in your neon clothing to make the experience even better!

Goliath

Work as a team on a vertical challenge course to reach the top. This is a great activity for those who are looking for something more extreme than the Group Challenge Course but not as adventurous as High Ropes.

9-Hole Disc Golf Course

Another activity that groups or families can enjoy, Krislund’s disc golf course is situated near the pool complex. This activity is great for those who are competitive or just looking for leisure.

Gaga Pit, Basketball, Volleyball

Fun outdoors includes dodging action in the Gaga Pit, shooting baskets or having a rousing competition on the sand volleyball court.

Fields for Sports

In addition to open meadows, Krislund has two large open grassy fields. Various sports programs, including soccer camps, have utilized the fields. The big field is approximately 9 acres while the smaller field is about 5 acres.

Swimming Pool

Warm weather activities include swimming in our huge pool, located in central camp.  

Labyrinth

The newly developed labyrinth is available to all visitors at Krislund as a place for meditation and reflection overlooking our fields.  The bench by the labyrinth commemorates the Rev. Tor Edvar, the first Director of Krislund.

Streams and woods for exploring and hiking

Krislund has 900 wooded acres filled with hiking trails of various lengths. Further, a pristine mountain stream provides many opportunities for learning about and enjoying nature.
