Ropes Course

Ropes Course

Nestled in the woods, you will find both our high and low ropes courses.  These courses are designed to build trust and camaraderie within groups. Our ropes courses are a fun and engaging way to bring groups together.  Our training and community building partner, Backyard Journeys, will customize a program to suit your group’s needs.


Giant Swing: The Giant Swing is one of our most popular elements. A participant is connected to the end of 2 steel cables as well as an “elevator” rope. The rest of the team, using the elevator rope, pulls the participant up anywhere from 5-45 feet off the ground, however high the participant challenges themselves to go. At this point the participant must pull a rip cord to release the “elevator” rope and take a giant swing on the steel cables. Thrilling is the only way to describe it!

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, which participants need to traverse across a 50ft span while on a belay system.



The Wall: A 14’ high wall must be safely scaled by the team without the use of any props.

Mohawk Walk: This low ropes activity utilizes varying lengths of cable strung between trees 8-12 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.

*The ropes courses require trained instructors hired by Warren Conference Center and Inn prior to use. Additional fees apply. Your sales manager can assist with the organizing activities.
