The Training Path "Challenge by Choice" philosophy allows all participants to be involved at a level best for them and does not promote pushing anyone too far out of their comfort zone. Although the events are designed to introduce several levels of challenge, no one is forced to climb or do anything they are not comfortable with. The skilled trainers can identify many different ways for all participants to stay involved and contribute so they can support the team while on the challenge course.
High Ropes activity examples:
The Flying Squirrel: This is a very popular event. Teams and individuals gain greater confidence, better communication skills and a sense of a shared mission on this element. A participant is attached to the end of a rope that runs approximately 40-feet in the air to a pulley and back down to a group of 8 – 10 participants attached to the other end of the rope. Working in unison, the "pony team" pulls the "flying squirrel" up to a desired height so they can enjoy the thrill of flying.
Giant’s Ladder: The Giant’s Ladder provides high climbing action on an oversized ladder that is made of beams and cables. Teams of 3-4 people have limited time to plan, implement, review and make changes to their climbing strategy. They also rely on their ground safety belay team to protect them as they climb this challenging element.
Catwalk: A horizontally positioned pole suspended between two trees 25 feet off the ground that requires balance and the belay support of participants on the ground to successful cross from one end to the other.
2-Line Bridge: A single foot cable with a hand line, participants need to traverse across a 50ft span while on a belay system.
The Zip Line: A very popular activity offers high-speed action and excitement for those who want to climb up a large tree to an elevated platform approximately 50 feet off the ground and zip down over 400 feet on a suspended steel cable, attached to a two wheeled pulley and safety tether. The Zip Wire is a high-level culminating activity that requires internal trust and commitment to complete.
Low Ropes activity examples:
Acid River: Using boards and blocks, the entire team must cross a large expanse without touching the ground.
The Wall: A 14’ high wall must be safely scaled by the team without the use of any props.
Spider’s Web: A "low ropes" initiative where the team must determine how to accumulate as many points as possible by getting individuals through the "Spiders Web" within the given time-frame.
Mohawk Walk: This low ropes activity utilizes varying lengths of cable strung between trees 8 to 12 inches off of the ground to form a circuit. With the assistance of other team members, individuals walk across each span while accumulating points for their team. Multiple teams are required to reach a sub-team and total-team goal.
