Challenge Ropes Course
The Challenge Ropes Course experience emphasizes the value of appropriate risk-taking, focus, and team support to create outstanding results. The activities allow participants to expand their comfort zones and acknowledge fears that may limit personal success. There is opportunity for each participant to play a role in each activity gaining valuable life skills and personal insights in dealing with change, stress management, personal growth, and enhanced relationships.

The high ropes course rises up to 40 feet off the ground in towering pines and cedars, providing a physical and emotional challenge. Instructors and fellow teammates provide support for each harnessed climber to experience the value of appropriate risk taking in a safe environment. The climbers and the ground team learn what is possible when courage overcomes fear and trust, support, and effective communication create high performance teamwork. Our “challenge by choice” philosophy supports each person to select the appropriate level of participation to stay involved in the program, engaged with their team, and consistent with their personal values.

Your company can also increase its team effectiveness while contributing to our Veterans Outreach Program by participating in our special "Team-Events with a Purpose" program!

FreeWheeling is an experiential wheelchair donation, team-building, and fund development program designed to promote community collaboration, event sponsorship, and open participation for all while raising support for disabled Veterans and their families.
