30 Unique Challenges. Countless Possibilities.

Challenge Course offerings are as diverse as the great outdoors. As one of the largest ropes courses in the Northwest, our challenge course provides a range of opportunities for school students through adults and appeals to different cultures and participants of all abilities. Canoeing, fishing, swimming, hiking trails, and more than 15 “low elements” ensures there’s plenty to challenge and thrill participants of all skill levels. There are more than 15 “high” elements, including a 60-foot high rock-climbing tower, and a 900-foot long Zip Line. More than 30 total elements provide the flexibility to meet all abilities and a wide range of group goals.

The activities challenge individual and group expectations and boundaries, while setting the stage to explore the issues surrounding them. As you scramble up ropes, scale trees, and repel down walls surprising things happen. Their own “walls” fall away as participants learn to trust themselves and one another. Even if you don’t opt for the 65-foot high Zip Line, soaring self-esteem is a sure outcome. In fact, you can choose from over 30 unique challenges to suit all abilities, providing object lessons in many different areas:

  • Trust
  • Confidence
  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Problem solving
  • Teamwork and Cooperation
