transforming CONFIDENCE IN ABILITy TO SUCCEED

High and low challenge courses are known to increase participant’s self-efficacy or the belief in their ability to accomplish new tasks. People who have higher self-efficacy are more apt to be successful when taking on new situations, such as transitioning from educational institutions or jobs.  Every year, Stowe Heights will aim to serve over 2,500 participants from the Greater Des Moines metro by promoting teamwork, communication, and leadership. We exist to help prepare the next generation of community inspired leaders in our city and the world at large.

PORTABLE, LOW & HIGH challenges DESIGNED AROUND YOUR PROGRAM GOALS

Whether a group chooses to use portable challenges at a location of their choosing, try their hand at the low challenge course, or utilize the high challenge course, each experience will be tailored to the specific needs of the group.

ADA design

This challenge course is the only course in the Midwest that is equipped to allow individuals with assistive devices to fully participate alongside their peers. While portable and low challenge elements are readily adaptable to the various needs of a group, this course also allows full participation on the high course through integration of specific harnesses and specialized equipment.  With the assistance of a mini-grant from Iowa's University Center for Excellence on Disabilities (UCED) we are assessing capacity to further accessibility as we build the low challenge course.  If you would like more information on accessibility please contact stoweheights@cyconcepts.org. 

YOUTH PROGRAMMING

Our youth opportunities integrate FUN and intentional programming that build leadership, stronger communication, as well as a variety of other important skills for youth. The skills they gain in our programs allow them to become the best they can be for themselves, their school, and their community.

ADULT PROGRAMMING

Challenge Courses are not just for youth. Through the use of intentional group development strategies and techniques, facilitators guide each group through an unforgettable experience that focuses on team building and cooperative problem solving. By developing these skills, and many others, we are helping to fine tune leadership styles for greater success in our community and the workplace.
