Campus recreation staff are joined by the Superior Chamber Ambassadors for the formal ribbon cutting of the new challenge course.

The Superior-Douglas County Chamber Ambassadors were on campus Tuesday, August 21st to do the formal ribbon cutting ceremony with campus and student staff. This newly constructed, state-of-the-art, bigger-and-better challenge course provides a fun, transformative challenge for groups of all kinds, ages and abilities.

The challenge course serves businesses, non-profits, athletic teams, schools, and youth groups. It is designed to teach groups about teamwork, trust, problem solving, communication and more.

Located behind Wessman Arena on UW-Superior's south campus, the course includes 23 high and low elements. The elements include swinging steps and an exciting 400-foot zip line. Groups of up to 40 can participate in program offerings ranging from as short as two hours to a full eight hour day. The ACCT-trained facilitators, which is largely student staffed, will work with each group to customize an experience to fit your schedule and specific needs.

The director of campus recreation, Harry Anderson, stated to the grand opening crowd that "The course is a great opportunity to our campus community as well as local organizations to strengthen bonds and push their limits. We've had people as young as four and as old as 70 up there."
