Low Ropes Course

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.

Why Choose Terrapin Adventures?

Terrapin Adventures understands that children are striving to compete in school, music, sports, and extracurricular activities and that can be stressful. Our facility is like no other in Maryland and we can go off-campus as needed with our portable equipment and creativity. Our team leaders have many years of experience working with school age groups. Your program will be personalized to your groups needs. TA operates under the concept of “challenge by choice” so rest assured that team members will not be asked to do things that are not comfortable.

“We had a fabulous time! The kids had a blast and so did we. Tony was an awesome guide. He really knows how to relate to middle school kids. He kept them on their toes and thinking. They talked about the trip the whole way home. We will definitely be back next year.” Lindale Middle School

Why It Works?

Our programs focus on fun and having kids work together to learn. Through carefully designed uplifting activities, bridges to communication are built, cooperation is improved, and creative problem solving is unleashed. Participants will be encouraged to bend boundaries and extend comfort zones to expand their potential.

Curriculum Based Programs

Terrapin Adventures is proud to provide a fun and educational environment for your school. Our professional guides will happily facilitate a common core standard oriented experience. Our team building debriefs encourage evidence based learning that can touch on broadly applicable Maryland specific and common core standards.  Students at Terrapin Adventures will be faced with team building challenges that will require effective questioning and defining of problems, analyzing and interpreting data they receive, and problem solving for solutions. If your school is looking for a topic specific learning experience, a visit to Terrapin dovetails perfectly with a Science unit on the Chesapeake Watershed (the Little Patuxent flows through our backyard), an English unit on controlling language (our reflections on communication discuss how intonation, pitch, volume, pause, and rate all influence meaning), or a Math unit on physics (our giant swing is one very big math problem.) Whatever your educational needs may be, we at Terrapin Adventures look forward to helping provide a fun learning experience.
