Lakewood’s most popular ‘Own choice’ activity is the Waterslide. Our water slide is approximately 13 metres long with foam padding underneath so you can guarantee a fun time for adults and children alike. With one of our staff members, anyone can race down our Waterslide. Get into your togs and see how long it takes to get to the bottom. The biggest splash or the most stylish slide down are always popular with students and adults!
In the sunny seasons we allow our campers to go for a cool dip in the lake under the watchful eye of our instructors.
Should you choose not to participate in the water activities for ‘Own Choice’ we also have a wide range of books to read from or board and card games to play with your friends, or even challenge an instructor, if you have a competitive spirit.
Up for a little bit more of strategy, at the front of the main lodge, on the court yard, you may notice a giant game of chess, our staff encourage you to give this one a go, maybe you could teach a few of us how to play!
None of the above options appealing to you, don’t you worry, we have a hall full of different games. During ‘own choice’ we offer pool and table tennis competitions; the winner gets an extra bowl of dessert. The pool and table tennis tables can be found down in the hall, we have two of each so there is plenty to share.
We also have 2 x Pool tables as well as a Table Tennis table so you can challenge your friends and see who is the champion.
Want something that requires a bit more physical exercise?? Well don’t look to far. Out the back of hall we have a sand volleyball court, here you can find our guests playing a game of volleyball, or Lakewood Lodges famous ‘J-Ball’.
