Low Ropes

Our low ropes area consists of a series of “elements” built 12 to 18 inches off the ground using cables, ropes, and logs. Though each element has a physical challenge to complete, the low ropes are really all about the process. A group’s most important goal is to use the physical task to learn about how they work together. Whether they complete task or not, they will learn about problem solving, listening, cooperation, giving and asking for support, and balancing each individual’s needs with the needs of the group. Many of the elements may look simple, but the low ropes are truly a powerful tool. With our expert facilitation, groups become more cohesive as they learn to observe and improve their group dynamics. They create a more supportive community by helping all participants feel safe and recognized—a goal that all groups should strive for.
