GROUP COMPETITIONS

In past years, group competitions were a huge hit and we intend to keep the format pretty much the same (although we are doing our best to remove the broken ribs and torn muscles from the schedule).  You're welcome to bring your mountain bike, baseball glove, golf clubs (chipping only), volleyball, soccer ball, etc. We will also be offering the highly sought-after, highly competitive "nap" competition again this year.


ACTIVITIES

Mt Hermon Conference Center offers many great activities: biking, hiking, kayaking, ropes course, climbing wall, archery, and a fitness center. Of course it is a great place to just relax too!
