ROPE CHALLENGE COURSE
ropes provide an ideal teaching medium for many developmental programs
and can be installed permanently or with a quick release system for
foot ropes to address issues of unauthorized use and damage.
low ropes course is a series of problem-solving experiences that
physically engage teams to develope and execute a plan. The challenges
are low to the ground but are more difficult than they might look.
Each challenge draws on every team member's contributions - their
ideas, their support, and their efforts. The low ropes course is
structures so that the activities gradually increase in level of
difficulty so that the team continually extends its aspirations and
designs have evolved around physical problem solving exercises where
the onus is places on the team rather than the individual.
Adventure seekers have the opportunity to entangle themselves in a
"Spider Web" through an interlaced rope that forms a large web,
suspended between two trees. The web has ten sections large enough for
each team member to pass. Participants attempt to pass each member
through a separate opening without touching the web. Depending upon
the level of the group and the allotted time, this activity can be
modified to make it more or less difficult.
Bridge is out gives group members the chance to travel from one
platform to another, separated by a 10' gap, with the objective to
cross or "bridge" the gap without touching the ground or letting the
boards (both shorter than 10') touch the ground.
