What is a Ropes and Challenge Course?
The ropes and challenge course, located on the western end of John Griffin Park, is designed to test personal and group strengths and limitations, to explore new ways of communication and to build support networks. During the experience, participants undertake emotional, mental and physical challenges. It is not an athletic competition. The physical and psychological safety of the participants is always of the utmost and primary concern of the program instructors.
**The Ropes Challenge Course CANNOT be rented until the District obtains the services of a Ropes Course Facilitator!**
If you know of someone who has these skills, please have them contact the District office at (719) 275-1578.
Who can rent the ropes course?
Anyone! Sports groups, scouts, church groups, family reunions, etc!
