Sports & Leisure Groups
Where groups come for fun and relaxation
The Okanagan Valley is a popular spot for athletic events such as hockey and soccer, scrapbooking, artist and photography retreats. The Summerland Resort is one of the favoured locations for sports teams and special interest group gatherings due to our excellent location, superb accommodations and venues. Whether your group is nine or ninety, our Okanagan group venues and hotel accommodations are sure to please everyone in your group.
Amongst the very best venues in the Okanagan, the Waterfront Ballroom boasts wall to wall windows and patio doors illuminating the room with plenty of natural light. Your attendees will enjoy the walk out to a spacious patio and beachfront area to take in shimmering Lake Okanagan. The Waterfront Ballroom’s rectangular footprint offers the flexibility to create a variety of floor plans to suit your event.
Located adjacent to the Waterfront Ballroom, the Lakeshore Boardroom offers an intimate meeting location for up to eight people. This meeting venue is ideal for a breakout, private meetings or visioning sessions. The Lakeshore Boardroom is also another option for coffee stations or lunch buffets.
Tucked away on the south side of the Summerland Waterfront Resort is a well-manicured semi-private lawn that leads to part of our Lake Okanagan shoreline. The Beachfront Lawn is lined with tall cedar bush on one side and brilliantly purple lavender bushes on the other side. Offering the comfort of grass with the backdrop of the beach and lake, this space is ideal for outdoor meetings or team building activities. The barbecue area at the north end of the Resort is ideal for group barbecues of up to 25 people.
