Challenge Course

ropes 2The Greene Family Camp Challenge Course offers unique adventure experiences designed to facilitate group cohesion and individual development. Successful completion of the elements instills participants with confidence and enthusiasm while providing lessons and realizations critical to success in life. The Challenge Course consists of both high and low elements ~ all of which require groups and individuals to reach beyond their comfort zone to accomplish the goal.

High Elements
The High Ropes Course is complete with many objectives, challenges and safety measures. This is a popular area with many features including a zip line and pendulum swing. Using harnesses, helmets, cables, ropes and wooden beams teams explore risk-taking, trust and coaching. Participants walk across cable bridges, negotiate giant ladders or ride zip lines across the courtyard as they overcome personal fears and develop new self confidence.

Low Elements
Can your group benefit from exercises in teamwork, communication and leadership? Schedule a low element challenge course experience during your event to build camaraderie within your group.

Alpine Tower
One of the most popular elements on our challenge course is the 50 foot Alpine Tower. Actually, there are more than 18 elements in one! The Alpine Tower can be used as a team building tool or as a very sophisticated climbing tower. There are many ways to the top!ropes

Outdoor Climbing Wall
One of the ways to the top of the Alpine Tower is the 50 foot Climbing Wall. Test your strength, agility and team spirit as you challenge each other to be the first to the top!

Zip Line
Imagine soaring through the air for 600 feet while safely harnessed to a line! The zip line is situated in our courtyard area and is one of the fastest ways to travel across camp.

Pendulum Swing
Enjoy feeling the rush of excitement as you fly through the air on a 50 foot pendulum swing…the experience will leave you invigorated and racing to get back in line for another ride!
