Embrace the Adventure!
Canaan has been running adventure programs from the 100 acre Island in the Catawba River near Charlotte, NC since 2005. We believe that staying active is the best way to promote good physical and mental health. Camp Canaan Adventures range from soaring high above the Catawba River on our Zipline Canopy tour to a relaxing kayak paddle down the beautiful Catawba River. We also have a team-building ropes course, Archery Tag, Bubble Soccer and more!
Our professional staff genuinely cares about each guest that comes to our island. Rave reviews on TripAdvisor attest to the level of service and customer care that is the heart of our mission: First and foremost, this is the Lord’s camp and we are just stewarding it, we are his feet and hands. Guests are not just a number to us; we want to help engage them in our Summer Camps, Activities and Adventure Programs. Come join us outside!
Zipline Canopy Tour
This 2 1/2 to 3 hour exhilarating adventure offers thrill seekers and tree-huggers alike the unique opportunity to ride 9 Ziplines through the trees on a network of cables and skybridges suspended high above the forest floor and crisscrossing the beautiful Catawba River. Upon arrival, our friendly and experienced guides will give you a detailed safety orientation before you are outfitted with your equipment for the tour.
Archery Tag® uniquely combines the intensity and excitement of dodgeball and paintball while using the skill set of archery with patented foam-tipped arrows. Unlike paintballs, our arrows leave no welts, bruising, or marks, making it fun and safe for players of all ages. Best of all – it’s mess free! Great for Birthday Parties, Company Picnics or Team building!
A hilarious game played like soccer but with the use of inflatable KnockerBall® bubbles. Players exert their true physical prowess (or lack there of) on other players “lucky” to be sharing the field. Each participant has their own inflatable bubble allowing them to play a full contact game of soccer that is part football, part pinball and is all fun.
Canaan has been guiding trips down the beautiful Catawba River, just south of the Lake Wylie Dam, since 2005. Our certified guides will lead you down one of the most scenic parts of this river system. Canaan offers both half-day and full-day kayaking trips.
High Ropes Course
This adventure starts with a Cocoon Tube Net climb and branches into a variety of high rope course elements with several levels of difficulties. The adventure will finish with either a leap on our auto belay or a 400 foot Single Zipline to exit the course! This adventure is suitable for ages 9 and up.
All team building programs are custom designed with your groups specific goals in mind. If there are specific goals you wish to accomplish with your group, whether it be leadership, teamwork, communication, trust, etc., we can tailor a low ropes team building program to meet the specific needs of your organization.
