Our ropes courses are a great way for groups to experience working together through challenging elements while enjoying beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains!
We have both high and low ropes courses at Quaker Ridge Camp!
The purpose of our low ropes course is to build teamwork, improve communication skills, encourage unity and self-confidence, and teach trust within a small group setting.
The low ropes course consists of nine elements designed to present the participants with a series of increasingly challenging physical, mental, and team problem-solving experiences. Group initiative, cooperation, socialization, and trust activities are all included. Successful completion of the many challenging scenarios requires a coordinated effort by every team member. The elements progress from simpler introductory elements to more advanced challenges requiring team work to develop a plan, execute it, and defeat the challenge.
This course is open to all ages and is facilitated and supervised by our trained and certified staff. Campers under the age of 18 are accompanied by their counseling staff at a ratio of 10:1.
The purpose of our high ropes course is to build self-confidence, encourage team work, and stretch each participant’s personal growth in facing certain mild fears and conquering them with the encouragement of their peers and instructors.
The high ropes course consists of eight separate cable and rope elements anywhere from 20 to 30 feet off the ground in a series of trees, culminating with a 500-foot-long zip line. The first seven elements are tied together so that once into the course, each element naturally progresses to the next. The eighth element is a stand-alone challenge. Participants are harnessed in to a static belay system and are required to connect and disconnect themselves at each element. A ground spotter and safety checker accompany each participant to ensure proper equipment usage.
This course is open to participants 13 years of age and older and is facilitated and supervised by our trained and certified staff. Each active participant is accompanied by at least one ground safety spotter at all times. Campers under the age of 18 are accompanied by their counseling staff at a ratio of 10:1.
