Unforgettable Adventures




Low Ropes

The Low Ropes Course activities are dynamic problem-solving challenges which are designed to teach your group key team-building lessons like cooperation, communication, trust, planning, and support. Supervised by our fully-trained staff, these activities will give your group a memorable experience that will be safe, fun, and educational too.

Low Ropes Course

The Low Ropes Course is the ideal way to teach teamwork in an outdoor setting. The course includes ten different group challenges, each with their own unique set of tasks to accomplish and problems to overcome. Each activity is facilitated by our staff who then lead a group discussion to draw application of key principles afterwards. Come prepared to climb, swing, lift, and scramble your way to success! 

Indoor Group Initiatives

In the event of inclement weather, we can offer a full set of group initiative activities conducted in the Joy Center. These activities are very similar (sometimes identical) to our outdoor Low Ropes Course. Each challenge is presented to the group by our staff in the context of a task to complete and an associated goal to accomplish. Afterwards, we'll lead a discussion to draw the application from the activity.

High Ropes

The High Ropes Course activities are designed for more than just excitement. They teach key character qualities such as perseverance, courage, determination, initiative, and faith. With safety as our top priority, our fully-trained staff will work with your group to be sure that everyone is challenged in a positive, encouraging atmosphere.

The Upward Tower

The Upward Tower is the flagship of our ropes course programs. This three-sided, fifty-foot tall tower provides your group with thirteen different climbing elements which can be combined for twenty-eight possible routes. Throughout their climb, they'll be belayed by their peers under the supervision of our staff. Once they reach the top they'll ride together down the 300-foot side-by-side zip lines to the ground!

Climbing Wall & Giant Swing

The Climbing Wall and Giant Swing provide great indoor alternatives to the outdoor high ropes activities. Located in the Joy Center, these activities can be used individually or back-to-back to create a full session of high ropes. The Climbing Wall features 12 designed climbing routes on three different walls. The Giant Swing involves the entire group working together to pull the participant up before they snap a quick release, sending them on this exhilirating ride.
