  • Hayrides

    This popular SBC activity takes riders on a winding path through the woods and hills of our 200 acres of property. Hayrides usually last 30 - 45 minutes, depending on the desire of your group. During warmer months, wagons are hay-less for the comfort of the riders.

    Following your hayride, we will have a bonfire waiting for your group. Bring your own food and snacks, or choose our food package. Contact our office for pricing. Please contact our office at 517-688-3783 or email to make a hayride reservation.

    Interwoven throughout our group building experience are the following emphases: Trust, communication, problem solving and team building. The experience is custom tailored by our staff and activities are chosen based on the age and maturity of the participants. Contact our office to schedule group building for your group.

  • hiking

    Somerset Beach has miles of well-marked hiking trails all throughout our woods and around the lake.

  • gaga ball

    Gaga ball is one of the most popular games at SBC! Players gather along the inner wall of the Gaga pit, with the Gaga ball placed in the middle. Players can only hit the ball once at a time, so once it is hit, you cannot touch the ball again until it hits off another player or a wall. Players are must exit the pit and game if they are hit below the waste by the ball at any time or if they hit the ball out of the pit. The last person standing wins!

  • disc golf
