Heidel House Resort's bike trails (try Mascoutin Trail or Loop the Lake) and hiking trails are a fabulous way to enjoy a warm day or the beautiful fall colors. Mountain bikes, or if you prefer, fishing poles (or sign up for a professionally guided charter), are available for a minimal hourly fee. Tennis rackets, as well as basketball and volleyball supplies are complimentary.
When the temperature drops, you can still enjoy the outdoors by taking advantage of our complimentary ice skates and sleds, or rent cross country skis and snowshoes for an hourly fee or half day rental. (Ski through our grounds or on the Red Pine Ski Trails or Green Lake Conference Center trails).
All rentals are available on a first come, first serve basis.

More Team Building Ideas
The opportunities are endless! Here are some team building ideas our staff can easily organize on our wooded grounds, sandy beach or in other open areas, such as Green Lake parks:
- Group Knot - The group is arranged in a knot and has to work together to untangle themselves.
- Mine Field - The group determines things that are detrimental to functioning as a group. Objects are used to represent these issues and partners must lead each other blindfolded through the "mine field."
- Canyon Bridge - Two groups meet on a narrow bridge. The groups need to pass each other to get to the other side of the canyon without falling off the bridge.
- Trust Falls - The ultimate trust activity.
- Wind in the Willows - Similar to Trust Falls, this exercise involves the whole group.
- Blind Walk - The group is divided into pairs with one partner blindfolded. The seeing partner leads the blindfolded partner on a challenging walk.
- Blanket Volleyball - Two teams, each with a blanket, volley items back and forth.
- Blind Shapes - Everyone is blindfolded and must form into different shapes as a group.
- Mummy Wraps - This icebreaker is a relay race between two or more teams where one member from each group is wrapped
