Challenge Course

10/19/13 9:00AM - 12:00PM

GSCI’s challenge course offers low and high ropes courses at each site and a variety of ground initiatives designed to enhance student leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving skills, as well as to improve communication, cooperation, support, trust, and risk-taking capabilities. Low ropes courses explore and recognize the  benefits of highly effective teams and team building. High ropes courses take your group to a higher level by utilizing elements that are 20 and 40 feet in the air. Participants use ropes and harnesses--as well as a zip line!--to negotiate the course. At Camp Widjiwagan, you also have the option of scaling the climbing wall.
