Adventure Activities

giant-swing-2Giant Swing:


This adventure activity is a swing on steroids. You will be harnessed to the swing and your group will pull you to the desired height up to 25 feet off the ground. Once you reach the height you desire you will be in control of releasing yourself for the large swing. This activity emphasizes the step of faith along with fun.

Time: 1.5 Hours
Ages: 8 and up
Group size: 8-12


Climbing Tower:


Our climbing tower is 35 feet high and has various levels of challenge. We have two different walls with varying levels of challenge. The harder side had two overhanging boxes. The easier side starts with a positive slope, which means it is less than vertical and transitions to a vertical wall halfway up. One to two people may climb at one time. You’ll learn proper climbing techniques, set personal goals and receive encouragement from your group.

Time: 1.5 Hours
Ages: 8 and up
Group size: 8-18


Challenge-CourseChallenge Course:


Junior high, senior high and adult groups will encounter 2 or 3 challenge “initiatives” that use bean bags, hoops, ropes and other props to teach foundational team-building skills and concepts. As the group progresses, they will work with 2 or 3 more challenging activities involving beams, ropes, platforms, the wall, and teeter-totters. We’ll take time to observe, discuss and learn from the group’s approach to solving the particular challenge. Participants grow in communication, leadership, cooperation, patience, goal-setting, analysis and planning.

Time: 3 Hours
Ages: 8 and up
Group size: 8-15

Hiking Trails


Men-O-Lan has four hiking trails. They range from more difficult rock-hopping to a relaxing walk in the woods.

Red Fox: The longest trail at camp Men-O-Lan. Many boardwalks and bridges over and around Hazelbach Creek make this trail one of the most scenic. Moderate Difficulty

Blue Rock: The Blue Rock Trail is also known at camp as the “rock hop” sections of this trail require some moderate scrambling from rock to rock. Not the best trail for a wet day, but one of Camp’s most fun to hike when the weather is nice! Most Difficult

White Tail: This is a great trail for getting to different key locations on the property. The White Tail Trail runs past or near destinations such as the pond, the lean-to, the zipline and giant swing, and the water slide. Easy to Moderate

Wood Chuck: The Wood Chuck Trail is a relaxing and fun trail that takes you to the eastern edge of the property. You can enjoy a jaunt in an open field as well as a nice walk through an evergreen forest. Easiest

Water Activities



The Pond at Camp Men-O-Lan is a place of fun for all ages. Groups can make use of our paddleboats and canoes free of charge, as well as try to catch the big one! (with a license of course).


Camp Men-O-Lan’s pool is just the rights size for your group to enjoy on a hot summer day. The pool is available for reservation from Memorial Day to Labor Day. All of our Lifeguards are certified by the American Red Cross.


Experience the thrill of our fast and fun Waterslide. The slide has an approximated 28 feet of elevation change, and is just the right thing to cool you off in the summer! Like the pool, the waterslide is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
