Other fun things to do

The Rocky Mountain Mennonite Camp itself has a variety of activities:

  • There's a small pond that with kayaks and canoes available.  It's fed by a spring and the water is quite cold, so swimming isn't for the faint of heart.  It's also stocked with rainbow trout for fishing.

  • There's a sand volleyball court and a cement basketball court on one side of the stream.  On the other side is a ball field for softball, soccer, and other games needing a larger space.  There's also a Frisbee golf course and horseshoes. 

  • There are several hiking trails starting right at the camp; the Aspen Ridge Nature Trail is a self-guided hike with information about different places and things along the way.
