Challenges Ropes Course
The ROPES Course provides small groups of 8-12 members with adventure-based experiences and activities designed to enhance growth and learning by doing. Ropes Course experiences are comprised of cooperative games, problem-solving initiatives, and group processing. The Course has low and high elements constructed of wood, cables and ropes in an outdoor setting. The small groups attempt each task with the facilitation of trained specialists. Safety cables and other specialized equipment protect participants. All participation is by choice; no coercion is involved. The specific personal and social adventure based experiences provide learning opportunities, which can be applied to life in general. The course encourages healthy risk-taking. Intellectual challenges encourage excitement and stimulation that promote creative thinking. The satisfaction of successful completion of the activities encourages participants to pursue new adventures at school, in the workplace, or in their personal lives.
