The beautifully kept grounds at Skogheim allow for guests to wonder through the property and experience a sense of peace in expansive natural surroundings. Birdlife is abundant and small buck can often be spotted grazing in the prayer garden.
For those who enjoy the outdoors and feel the need to work off the delicious meals there are a number of outdoor activities available. Our stunning 18m pool and braai area is a very popular for lunch and afternoon events. We have two beach volleyball courts and a mobile volleyball net. We have a beach soccer court that can also be used for other energetic activities such as chair-ball. Our unique 18 ‘tree’ Frisbee golf course is ideal for some healthy family competition or a relaxing stroll around the property. There are marked walking trails of various lengths and degrees of difficulty and our 3km long mountain bike trail is available for those with their own bikes. Other facilities include a trampoline, a kiddies jungle gym for under 12’s (currently under renovation), a bonfire area and a selection of sports equipment available for hire.
We offer facilitated outdoor adventure activities to compliment and enhance any camp theme or Bible teaching objective you have. These include a low-ropes obstacle course, fixed element team-building obstacles and our new ‘Seek and You will Find’ orienteering race.
