Operating under the "Challenge by Choice" and "Positive Peer Pressure" philosophies, the Superior Challenge Ropes Course allows participants to be challenged as much as they desire, while receiving positive encouragement from facilitators and other participants. Participants choose how much they want to do, but facilitators will encourage you to stretch yourself and try something new.

Most challenge course experiences reveal participants receive the greatest gains through fun, reflection and self-realization when they push themselves beyond what they think they can do.

These philosophies enable participants to experience their own success within their own goals and aspirations
