There are a large number of activities that groups can undertake at Manjedal. Some activities require trained MAC staff and some you can run yourself (self-facilitation). We can supply one or more camp coordinators to oversee your entire camp and keep you on track with schedules and programming. MAC staff are happy to help you to plan successful activities.
Please note: There are a number of FREE activities for groups should they use their own equipment. These include Bike riding, Frisbee golf (day use), Nature trail, Navigation, Night trail, Orienteering, Compass course, Swimming (If PFD’s are not required), & Walk trails. Swimming and other water based activities can only be self-facilitated if your supervisor is an extremely confident swimmer, and preferably also holds a qualification such as a current Bronze Medallion.
Other activities that can be self-facilitated for a charge of $25 per 1.5 hour session (not per person) include: Blind Trail, Confidence course, Challenge zone (low ropes), MAC points, and Swimming (If PFD’s are required).
Canoeing & Raft Building can be self-facilitated for a cost of $40 per 1.5 hour session.
