SplatMaster low-impact paintball welcomes kids aged 7–11 to enjoy a gentle version of paintball; the smaller paintballs break easier on impact and hurtle through the air at 50% less velocity than traditional paintballs. Before taking to the field—which is separate from the traditional paintball field—kids watch a safety video and practice using the pump-action, spring-loaded SplatMaster guns. When ready, the mini competitors face off in sessions that last 10–15 minutes. All equipment is provided, including up to 2,000 paintballs per group.
Each player receives:
- Pump-action SplatMaster gun
- Face shield and chest protector
- Bunker-buster rocket<p>
Tucked away in the foothills of the Western Cascade Mountains, Camp Dakota flouts the constraints of gravity with high-flying adventures that test participants' skills, stamina, and propensity to scream at high altitudes. Suspended steel ziplines whiz above the forest canopy as squirrels wave from nearby branches and passing meadowlarks pause for fist bumps. Teamwork trumps individual heroics on the high-ropes course, whose elevated, threaded obstacles sway precariously above the distant ground.
The aerial odyssey doesn't stop there. Instructors supply safety harnesses and words of encouragement before leading the way to a vertical rock-climbing wall. Replete with slim footholds and perturbed mountain goats, the wall poses a challenge to climbers of all abilities, who take solace in the added safety of fully automated belays.
