Challenge programming comes in all shapes and sizes. While we offer programming on the ground and in your office, we also have an incredible challenge course, full of structures and obstacles.
There are four basic activity types we use to develop challenge course curriculum: workshops, portable initiatives (we come to you), low elements, and high elements. The activities chosen are determined through conversations with you, your goals and outcomes, and how physically active the group would like to be. Learn more about our Challenge Course Facility here.
High elements involve wearing a specialized harness with a rope and cable safety system designed to provide 3500 pounds of protection. Individuals and teams experience risk and challenge with minimal potential for physical harm. We have three high structures:
Track N Trail
- First Tier 17 feet, six elements
- Second Tier 29 feet, six elements
- 32 feet tall
- Team belay
- 72 feet tall
- Two or three climbers
- Team belay
Low elements are permanently installed structures. All activities are conducted on structures no taller than playground equipment, and group members work together to complete their objective. Low elements provide physical intensity and involvement of all group members. Our course currently has ten low elements. Here are a few:
The cable walk consists of four steel poles connected by wire ropes, with the distance between each pole increasing incrementally. Often we have groups traverse from one side to the opposite, but we run different challenges with each group.
The wall is a 12' structure where we have groups scale over to the opposite side.
Portable initiatives include a broad range of activities. The physical effort varies from minimal to extreme. Our portable initiatives can be taken indoors or to your site., including classrooms, offices and off-site locations.
