Roller World

Let the bouncing tunes and pulsing lights inspire campers to strap on their skates and get in the rink! Groups are invited to attend any of Roller World’s open skate sessions. Besides skating, students and scouts can play video and table games, air hockey, and bowling. Don’t forget to cash in tickets for special prizes! Pizza, soda, slushes, ice cream, and more can be found at the snack stand. Skate rentals are also available.

Indoor Entertainment - Arcades Fun Facts

Have campers take a (quick) break from the fun on the next trip to an indoor amusement center, and have them think about the design and day-to-day operations of the venue. How is it designed and laid out? What games and features (batting cages, arcade games, redemption games) go where, and why? Have them take a look around at how many people are there enjoying themselves; what is the maximum number of occupants, and why? How does the management go about heating and cooling the venue at different times of the year?

Speak to the staff about these questions; learn the "why" behind how things are arranged, and consider the role of safety. Relate this to how things are organized and what the rules are back at the camp.
