Low Ropes Course

Challenge Course

These activities give your group a unique opportunity to interact together to creatively overcome various obstacles. Groups (church, youth, school, business) will have fun as they learn the importance of encouragement and building trust as they communicate together to solve problems.The overall goal is to give each person an opportunity to have a fun, challenging experience, while growing in his/her relationship with God.

Challenge activities are voluntary. In order to promote growth, we encourage participants to reach for their highest potential while still respecting their personal limits. Activities are facilitated by trained staff using professional equipment. High elements utilize a professional rope safety system. Each participant must complete and sign a medical / liability release form.

Low Ropes Course

Sessions begin with some fun games and activities to promote teamwork and communication. As your group experiences 2-3 of our challenge elements they will have the unique opportunity to interact, trust, and encourage one another. Throughout the experience, your group will be encouraged to apply these “created” challenges to life and their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Flying Squirrel

This favorite element is unique in that it creates a “flight” courtesy of the other members of the group. A person is pulled off the ground as the rest of the group runs with the rope that is attached to the participant. It’s a thrilling example of teamwork and trust in each other!

Tree Climb

Similar to a climbing wall, but on a tree! This individual challenge invites climbers to attempt to scale the 30’ plus route of challenge course staples to the platform high above the forest floor. Facilitated by an instructor, climbers learn basic safety skills associated with the climb focused on personal challenge with group encouragement. What an accomplishment when they wave to their applauding teammates from on top of the platform.
