WHAT IS A CHALLENGE COURSE?

A challenge course is a combination of mental and physical challenges requiring groups to work as a team to accomplish goals. Through a series of fun and unusual activities, participants learn valuable information about themselves, each other, and the group as a unit.   By removing people from their usual environment and placing them in a new, unique setting, a challenge course experience fosters shared learning, openness, and cooperation. 

 

Low elements take place on the ground or up to 3' above the ground. High elements are usually constructed on utility poles up to 40' above the ground and requires harnesses and additional safety equipment.

Course Details

The Stowe Heights Challenge Course is structured to serve all ages of participants. We adapt programming to meet the goals of each group according to their unique needs. Examples of groups that Stowe Heights staff have worked with include school groups, youth and adult leadership groups, religious organizations, sports teams and businesses.  Any group that would like to play and have fun together, learn about each other and build a sense of community and purpose are likely to benefit from a day out at Stowe Heights.
