“It’s heart pounding fun!”
“It’s the most adrenaline producing activity in camp!”
“I can’t get enough!”Slide Show: Paintball
There’s no doubt that paintball is the most exciting sport to hit the summer camp scene in a long time. Nothing else makes your blood pump like when you’re being “hunted” by the enemy or when you turn the tables and attack the opposition. It’s a thrill that’s unique to paintball and it’s really a lot of fun!
Camp Lohikan has 2 paintball fields which cover over 10 acres of woods, fields and streams. We have a 4 acre speedball field with numerous man-made and natural objects (bunkers) including a 500 square foot building structure. We also have a woods-ball playing field which offers players a variety of terrains and all types of cover. The woods-ball field covers over 6 acres surrounding a mountain top which is perfect for those “King of the Hill” games!
Paintball is an exciting fast-paced, action-packed sport! It’s a sport you can enjoy if you’re big or small or even fast or slow! Girls and boys enjoy the game equally.
At Camp Lohikan we operate the paintball activity just like the commercial professional fields back home. Every participant attends a safety orientation where safety rules and regulations are reviewed and practiced before playing games. Safety headgear is worn at all times during the activity. Experienced instructors and referees operate the activity and manage the games.
While paintball is a fun recreational activity, at Camp Lohikan, paintball is also an activity where skills and values like sportsmanship are taught. Game strategies teach teamwork and decision-making skills. Playing on a team promotes camaraderie and broadens friendships in camp in so far as girls and boys, young and old, get to play together on teams. Paintball teaches a lot of important life skills but campers do it mostly for one reason... IT'S FUN!
