Our Low Ropes course is a great way to build trust, communication, and initiative within a group. Led by trained staff, the group will go through a series of elements to help build on those skills. The course can be tailored to your specific group and goals (a middle school youth group, a sports team, men’s retreat….), just let us know when you are booking and we can design the right program for you!
