High and Low Courses
Our Challenge Course is made up of 23 elements that contain both high and low initiatives.
Click on the link below to learn more about our different elements.
Participants proceed through the element by stepping on "islands" either in a straight line or by using the "islands" located to either side of them. This element is designed for multiple people to cross at the same time and is an excellent way to build trust, group cohesion, and improve communication skills.
A participant in a full body harness is attached to one of a rope and a group of 8+ people are attached to the other end of the rope (the center of the rope is connected to a pulley system 30 ft above the participants). The participant and the group run in opposite directions and the participant simulates a "flying squirrel" by being hoisted into their air. The element breaks down fears and improves teamwork by working together and trusting/supporting each other.
