Challenge Course

Purpose Statement

To provide team building initiatives and activities to develop solidarity and teamship while having fun.

Low Rope Course

The low ropes course is composed of various elements which involve cables, ropes, platforms and other equipment all on or close to the ground. All of the low elements are designed to promote teamwork, trust and communication. The activities can be geared toward a group’s particular goals and help explore how to later apply the same skills to everyday situations.

High Ropes Course

The high ropes elements involve different challenges which range from heights of 15-30 feet. The course can be tailored to each group’s needs and desired outcomes.

  • Intro to High Ropes: Combination of 4 elements each 15ft high.
  • Challenge Area: Inclined Log, Bridge, Multi Vines, Jacob’s Ladder, Power Pole and Vine & Branches. All elements 30ft high.
  • Tower Area: Climbing Tower, 30ft Zip Line, Neg Wall, Rappelling Wall, Ready to Fly and 60ft Big Zip.

All challenge course participants will need to complete a WCC Medical Release Form before getting on the course. Click the link on the right to download the form or contact the WCC Office.


Do I have to be an athlete to do the challenge course?

When you are on the course we run under the policy of challenge by choice. You choose what challenge you are comfortable with and want to do. Many of the elements are designed for team building and cooperation and can be done by all skill levels.

Are you sure this cable will hold me?

Absolutely! You are on 3/8 inch galvanized aircraft cable that has a tensile strength of 14,000 pounds. We have not had anyone weigh that much yet!

Has anyone died doing this?

NO, and we do not plan on this happening.

Do you have a minimum for group sizes?

Yes, groups must have at least 10 people participating.

What age group can do the challenge course?

We have had ages from 5 to 78 on the course. Many of the elements can be adapted for different age groups. On the high elements the harness must fit the participant and may eliminate some of the smaller children from participating.

If I want to bring my family here how much would it cost?

Sarah Jaster does all of the booking for the challenge course and can tell you what the cost would be and what dates are open. After you have booked a date a facilitator will contact you and visit with you about what you would like to accomplish with your group on the course.

What if I want my group to work on team building?

The low elements are designed for the team building and cooperation. That would be the best choice.

What are the other areas?

The high elements lend themselves more to confidence building on an individual basis although the group will have the opportunity to encourage their group members. The climbing wall is an individual challenge that does take some physical strength to accomplish. The zip line is just fun but will at times give opportunity to overcome some fears.

How do the facilitators know want to do?

Each of our facilitators are certified to work on the course. They go through an intense training that includes written test and skills demonstrations that qualify them to be a facilitator. After they are certified they must complete a re-certification each year.

Do I need any special equipment to participate on the course?

No, the equipment you will need is provided. You will need to make sure you wear tennis shoes or climbing type boots to be on the course. Jeans or longer jean shorts will also insure that your experience will be a positive one. It is a good idea to leave all jewelry at home. You will not be able to wear it while participating on the course.
