What is the Challenge Program?
The Challenge Program offers people innovative ways to improve their abilities when working with others. This learn-by-doing approach focuses on creative problem solving and effective communication. Join us for a day of fun experiences that will activate inner resources, increase trust and enhance group cohesion. Each program is tailored to meet the needs of the group. Our team of facilitators has experience with clubs, office units, social organizations and corporate groups.

The Ropes Course consists of group initiatives and high and low team building elements. The High Ropes Course is over 130 feet long and has two levels topping out 38 feet above the ground. As participants progress through the course, they are challenged by completing up to 6 elements that they confront with a variety of facilitator directed challenges. Exiting the course consists of 5 different methods to swing, leap, tumble, or zip line. The 3 zip lines off the course total nearly 1,000 feet long and also introduces to the course a large mid-zip platform 50 feet high in a giant sweetgum tree overlooking Snapfinger Creek.
The Low Ropes Course consists of 13 individual elements located throughout the property and serve as a great way for groups to come together and target developmental skills and collaboration. The challenges call upon every member of the group to participate, and offer endless opportunites for self-discovery.
