Our Low Ropes Course offers group-oriented initiatives that foster leadership, personal awareness, communication, teamwork, creativity and problem solving. Groups focus on building a strong foundation of trust enabling them to focus on teamwork, while individuals learn techniques for leadership and interpersonal skills.

Our 42 foot tall High Ropes Course will challenge both individuals and groups alike! With our Challenge by Choice philosophy groups can continue to build on the foundation of trust developed during the low course experience, while also allowing team members the opportunity to accomplish personal goals.
