All-Day Challenge Course Programs: Offering a variety of individual and partner challenges, our high ropes courses are built outdoors on telephone poles and use climbing ropes, steel cables, and wood to create challenges 30 to 45 feet off the ground! One of the major benefits of a high ropes course experience is the increased self-esteem that participants get from doing things that they thought were not possible. The program is completed with a group reflection on the experience. These reflections help participants process the experience and discover how they can apply this new knowledge to other situations. Includes Lunch. 8 hours

The “Tower” course is most appropriate for older teens and fit adults and athletic teams, and requires at least a Half-Day Ropes Course Program to complete.
