High Adventure

Overcome fears, scream for joy, and live a little!  These high adventure activities can turn a good day into a GREAT one. High Adventure activities are at an additional cost (except zipline/climbing tower for summer campers and sledding for winter campers), and are available weather-permitting.

  • zipline

    Elementary aged campers love to conquer our 4-story, two-football-fields long zipline. This double zipline allows campers to share the experience with a friend. It is located in the central portion of the camp property, about a 4-minute walk from main camp. 

  • climbing tower

    Middle School students and up face the challenge of our two climbing walls. A variety of pre-set paths up the wall keep this challenge fresh. The climbing tower is a part of the zipline tower. 

  • Pontoon

    Imagine a peaceful, leisurely trip around the lake.  Taking in the sights, and quiet reflection.  This isn't that.  Our pontoon powers through Lincoln Lake to one of two amazing destinations!  Swim in the clear blue waters of Blue Lake.  Or - if you dare - take on one of Lincoln Lake's favorite spots: the crisp waters of the spring-fed Ice Box!  Guests renting the pontoon could also enjoy a quiet cruise...if you're into that!

  • speed boating

    Tear across Lincoln Lake behind our competition-level Master Craft speedboat.  Enjoy every single one of the 400 acres of all-sports Lincoln Lake.  We offer tubing, water skiing, wake boarding and more!  Ask nicely, and Joel just might give some complimentary barefoot water ski instruction!

Summer activities

Our summer campers enjoy these activities, and so do our guests!  We offer these throughout the summer,

as well as in the late spring and early fall (weather permitting)

  • glowball!

    Enjoy one of Lincoln Lake's signature activities: Glowball! We turn on the ceiling-mounted blacklights in the Quonset and crank up the music for this fast-paced, high-energy experience. Dodge all incoming throws and knock over the other team's pins or take out all opposing team members to win. So fun!

  • 4-court volleyball

    4-way Volley ball is chaotic, exciting and fun and can involve up to 40 players at once. A high energy game where competition runs high, 4-Way Volleyball allows 4 teams to simultaneously compete against each other. To lighten things up, use a beach ball (or two). Or enjoy a family camp favorite activity: Nuke 'Em!

  • basketball

    Take on some friends for a game of ball. We've got a cement, outdoor, 3/4 court with a 10-foot hoop at each end. Classic fun here.

  • the beach

    Sandcastles anyone? Enjoy a large welcoming area to enjoy some sun. Spread out the beach blanket, or pull out your favorite chair. Enjoy swimming in the cool waters of Lincoln Lake. Enjoy our 10' high dive and low diving board. We've also got the unsinkable watermats to play on in the shallow area and water basketball in the intermediate swim area.

  • canoeing

    Is that how you spell it?  Yep.   Classic camp. Enjoy the stillness of the lake on a peaceful canoe trip. We've got 13 canoes available with life jackets and paddles galore.

  • archery

    People from many walks of life enjoy archery. Almost every age group can participate. We've got several bows to choose from, including traditional bows and new compound bows. A fun group or individual activity.

  • octoball

    Octoball is played in our very own octagon pit. Players "hit" the ball at each other in the ring. If the ball hits another player below the knee, they are out. But be careful! Anyone who hits the ball out of the pit is out. Kids LOVE this game, and will play for hours!

winter at lincoln lake

When it's cold outside, enjoy some amazing Pure Michigan fun in the snow.  After some time on the ice or the tubing

hill, cozy up to the fireplace with a cup of your favorite piping hot drink from the cafe.  Repeat as necessary.

  • broom hockey

    Our classic winter activity here at Lincoln Lake. Sticks and pucks collide in action packed boot hockey tournaments! Our beautifully maintained indoor rink is always in great playing shape. Play this great game for hours, or watch the games from the warmth of the indoor fireplace just a few feet away. All the action takes place in our Quonset Hut.

  • tubing hill

    Fly down solo or make it a party of tubes! Your adventure isn't over at dark, thanks to our illuminated hill. Our hill in the woods was constructed in 2011 with giant banked corners and is a HUGE hit with our guests.

  • Game Room

    Square off in a game of ping pong, foosball, carpet ball, pool, or our custom "Shoe Buc". There's plenty of space to hang out. Grab a coffee or hot drink from the cafe and gather with your friends around the tables or on the couches near the fireplace.

  • indoor 9-square in the air

    Why? Because we can! The Old School Playground Game on a whole new level! When it's freezing outside, you can still play one of your favorite camp games in our toasty lodge.
