The Low Ropes Course is a series of activities designed for group development. Facilitated by our trained staff, these experiences can help to build your group into a community, helping them to reflect on issues of leadership/fellowship, service, communication, grace, problem-solving, trust/fear, etc. All participants participate at the level of their own ability and challenge. The course involves warm-up and group building field games, "low ropes" events using installed elements with cables, ropes, and lumber from one to five feet above the ground, and low ropes initiative events using similar elements, incorporating problem-solving challenges. The course, which consists of trees, cables, ropes, and wooden planks, is a tool that impels its participants into challenging, risk provoking and occasionally stressful situations. Thus groups will begin to look and identify specific dynamics of individual or group behavior.
The program is open to people ages 10 and up, for non-profit groups as well as professional groups. Groups should allow a minimum of three hours to work on the RCC as trained facilitators guide your group through an array of activities. Times must be reserved in advance of your visit. A minimum of 8, and maximum of 15 per group or station. Multiple groups may participate simultaneously. Registration and health forms required.
