 ACTIVITIES: Back to Schedule
High Ropes
This is a thoroughly challenging activity. Picture yourself 50 feet in the air traversing along a steel cable with the guidance of trained instructor. Of course, you are connected to a harness and webbing that can easily hold a 3,000-pound pick-up truck; however, it does not take away the sheer exhilaration of this thrilling experience.
Iroquois Springs has an extensive ropes course with 15 elements.
Hiking Trails
Scenic trails wind their way throughout 120-acre campground at Iroquois Springs. Participants will have an opportunity to explore the beautiful woods at this camp located just south of Catskill State Park. Trail maps will be provided.
Iroquois Springs has picturesque spring-fed lake. Canoeing and Kayaking will be available for all participants.
Other Recreational Facilities
Iroquois Springs offers several other recreational facilities such as a fully-equipped theater, Baseball field, Basketball courts, Roller Hockey rink, Soccer field, Softball field, Tennis courts, and Volleyball courts. All recreational facilities will be open to all participants through out the weekend.

In addition, there will be games and other fun-activities planned for the weekend.
