Activities at NaCoMe

Whether your group has been coming to NaCoMe for years or it's your first time, we can help you put a schedule of activities together that will keep your group engaged and excited. Activities at NaCoMe range from the camp classics (like archery or canoeing or swimming) to the extreme (ziplines, rock walls, Giant Swings, anyone?). We believe that the activities aren't the reason groups come to NaCoMe, but they play an important role in the overall experience. So let us help improve your retreat with activities; we can collaborate to make your vision a reality, regardless of your adrenaline tolerance or your budget. 


Basic Activities

Included in all NaCoMe retreats:

  • The Creek: search for crawdads in our cool creek or simply sit back and relax.
  • Horseshoes: Our side-by-side horseshoe pits foster community and friendly competition.
  • Get athletic: Our basketball, volleyball and 4-square courts are a great way to get your heart pumping!
  • Gaga: Feel the thrill of this unique version of dodgeball in our custom octagonal pit.
  • 9 Square In The Air: Traditional 4-Square, expanded to 9 squares, then turned upside down. Fast paced and addictive!
  • Human Foosball: A life sized version of the table-top classic. 
  • Hiking: We've got over 600 acres that can satisfy your appetite for exploration. 
  • Disc Golf: Our 9-hole course spans our beautiful main camp area. Bring your own discs or borrow ours!
  • Rec Field: Up for a game of flag football? Our field is big enough to accommodate any group.

The Swimming Hole

All Ages
Children under 11 require an adult
Max of 50 people at one time
1-4 hours

Situated at the far end of main camp, we’ve dammed the creek to form a natural body of water for swimming and playing. Lifeguards are mandatory and are a function of the total number of people swimming. Total cost is calculated by the number of lifeguards your group requires.

The Giant Swing

Junior high and older
10-25 people
2 hours

Towering at over 50 feet, our giant swing offers a rush of adrenaline. Have your group pull you up to the top or just as high (or low) as you’d like, pull the cord and feel the wind on your face as you swing down and back to the tops of the trees.


The Leap of Faith

Junior High and Older
10-25 People
2 Hours

Get your heart pumping and palms sweating as you climb more than 30 feet on a single pole, then stand on top with nothing to hold on to. If that wasn't enough, the next task is to leap out to ring the bell, relying on the rope and your harness to catch you. In addition to our trained staff, you're guaranteed to need faith in your group- they're the ones holding the rope!
