Bringing Lumberjacks together

Our Challenge Course helps student groups and classes build problem-solving and leadership skills.

You and your group can brave a ropes course up to 30 feet high, speed along a zip line and try the Leap of Faith. You’ll find a different set of challenges if you try the low ropes course, which has 10 elements that require teamwork and communication to complete.

Reservations are required at least one month in advance of your program date. To request a date to use the Challenge Course, complete the online Experiential Learning Center Reservation Request form.
