A Day at the Challenge Course
A day at the Glen Lake Challenge Course can consist of spending half a day or a full day with us on the course. The group has the opportunity to do low ropes, climbing wall, and zip line. Each activity can be scheduled individually or as a combination, please specify when the group calls to make reservations. Here is a brief description of each activity to give you a better idea of what would be right for your group:
The low ropes course consists of a variety of ground level initiatives designed to bring a team together. All of the initiatives are concrete tasks that involve problem solving through teamwork. The tasks themselves, while fun and often challenging, aren't as important as the process and outcome of what the group itself does. The interaction of the group, the process they use to solve the problem, and the final outcome, are all examined by the group after each initiative. What we believe at Glen Lake Challenge Course is that learning through experience is great, but unless you stop to reflect on that experience, you don't gain anything from it. We reflect on what we do, so we can then take it and apply it to real life!
The zip line starts with the participant on the ground, where they then climb the stairs 35-40 feet in the air to the zip line platform. That is where they are hooked into the zip line and sent off to enjoy the ride! The challenges associated with the zip line are more individual ones, but there is still a place for encouragement, support from the group, and teamwork. Some of the challenges the individual will face, such as building confidence, risk taking, and over coming fears, can be addressed in a safe team environment that allows for growth and development within the group.
If your group isn't up for the zip line, but would still like to add something extra to your day, we do have an indoor climbing wall that can be booked as a part of the challenge course program. Click on the link for more information and pictures.
