Activities

There’s so much to do at a Skyland Retreat! 

In addition to your retreat’s scheduled activities, the following activities are available to all our guests: 

Archery:  No need to bring your own bow and arrows.  We provide everything you need, including tips from experienced instructors. 

Games:  Gather enough new friends and hit our games courts … Volleyball, ring tennis, Newcombe on the hard courts or ping-pong are available.  Not in the mood for such physical feats? Check out the library for chess, Scrabble, backgammon and more!


Horseback Riding: With resident horses, a large outdoor ring, local trails, and even jumps, we have everything you need to satisfy your inner horsewoman! 

Reading:  Relax with a book on the wrap-around porch, at the pool, in the library or in the comfort of your own luxurious bed on a screened-in sleeping porch. 

Swimming:  Heated swimming pool will be open at designated times for exercise and relaxing. 

Tetherball:  Remember how soothing hitting that ball around and around was?  Relive that experience at Skyland’s tetherball post. 

Tennis: Two hard courts are available for you to volley (alone or with someone) during your free time. 

Depending on your Retreat, other activities may be available and will be listed on your schedule.
