Challenge Courses (or ropes courses) are a progression of low team-based elements and high challenge elements built in the trees using cables, ladders and ropes. Our programs foster a fun, safe and positive environment in which individuals and groups work together to develop confidence, trust, support, communication, cooperation and leadership skills.
Our programs use accredited safety systems and standards facilitated by well-trained, certified leaders to facilitate a fun, supportive and inspiring adventure. We also have a continued, long standing safety record and our courses are inspected annually.
We can tailor programs to meet specific organizational goals. A variety of adventure programs are offered to teachers, social workers, corporate groups, students and other professionals seeking to utilize outdoor experiential training strategies, including high ropes courses, group initiative activities, and cooperative games for group process, team building, and personal growth programs.
This concept of choice allows the participant to decide if he/she will participate in an activity or not, a philosophy used during all parts of our challenge course. Participants always have the choice to not continue or to participate in a different way at any point during the activity; however, spotters, anchors and rope tenders have the responsibility to continue doing their job until the climber is safely on the ground.
The facilitator may never force an individual to participate; however, the facilitator will encourage each participant to step out of his/her comfort zone and at least challenge themselves in some way. The choice is always up to the individual.
If an individual chooses to not actively participate, she/he will be encouraged to play a supportive role, which could include spotting, communicating, anchoring, or tending the rope. These roles will be explained at the beginning of the course during the introduction.
