Depending on your group’s program option, you will participate in the some or all of the following course features. Terrapin Adventures will facilitate all events, however chaperon’s will be needed for supervision of minors and to assist when required. Our course has the following elements and amenities:
Low Ropes Course Challenges – Participate in games and exercises that are no more than 3 feet of the ground. During these activities, facilitators will make use of various props and the permanent outdoor elements of our course. These activities will use both mental and minor physical challenges, which focus on developing trust, improving communication, and working together as a team. We will debrief each activity in order to reinforce concepts and tie the information learned back to their personal lives.
High Ropes Challenge Course – Balance across elements with names like Heebie Jeebie, Islands in the Sky, Raider Bridge, and Wobbly Log. Starting only 12 feet off the ground, participants will progress up to 45 feet up through a series of traverses while connected to our state of the art continuous belay system. There are over 19 different traverses to conquer.
Terrapin Tower – Scale the exhilarating routes our climbing tower has to offer. Two walls have traditional rock climbing holds, while the other two sides are combination of cargo nets, rope ladders, and custom climbing routes. See if you can go up and down all 12 ways of our climbing tower with its vertical play pen. Students will help each belay each other on this 43 ft. tower.
Zip Line – Conquer your fears by balancing across a 30-foot traverse before reaching the zip platform. Once there, we will transfer you to our 330-foot zip line cable, and after clearing the line, participants will zip at 20mph the entire length of the line, before returning half way to be unloaded.
Giant Swing – Experience 2 G’s of force as up to 3 students at a time get lifted 40 feet in the air before swooshing through the canopy.
Lunch – Choose from one of our menu options, or provide your own food. We can have the groups utilize our indoor studio space, rotating as needed. Outside picnic space is also available. During lunch we can lead discussions on environmental concepts like Recycling, Reducing Your Carbon Footprint and Leave No Trace.
