Climb On:

challenge Course Scholarship

Consider helping to fund an opportunity for a group of youth to participate in the portable, low, or high challenge course experience by contributing to our Challenge Course Scholarship fund.

Our course offers a unique opportunity for youth and adult groups alike that serves a need in the Greater Des Moines community and the midwest.


The ropes course brings a new opportunity to the Des Moines metro and the Midwest. Your tax-deductible gift of $50 or more help contribute to the long-term sustainability of the course and will help offset equipment purchases, course inspection and maintenance, and ongoing operational fees.
