Ropes and Challenge Course
The 18 elements of the course involve trust falls, climbing, swinging, balancing and lifting. The nine low elements require participants to plan strategies, explore solutions, work cooperatively, listen and trust each other. The nine high elements (25 to 50 feet off the ground) are more of a personal challenge and remembered by campers because of the drama, anxiety, fear and exhilaration experienced. All activities are “challenge by choice.”
The Ropes and Challenge Course is a double activity period held every day (Monday-Friday).
*There is an additional fee of $60.00 per week for participation in the Ropes and Challenge Course, with a limit of 60 campers per week. Participants must be at least 11 years old.
