is a ropes course? It is a series of obstacles constructed of various
types of materials to provide challenges to the individual or group.
Participants work their way up through low course elements (up to
3 feet off the ground) and progress on to the high course elements
(20-85 feet in the air.) Through the use of team support systems
and state of the art rock climbing equipment, the course is able
to provide a controlled situation where actual risk is practically
non-existent. The perception of risk is the catalyst for individuals
and groups to benefit from by expanding their comfort zones, team
problem solving, and overcoming natural fears.
building (Low element course)
been put through the hoops? Forced to walk the plank? Made to
work with others? These are real experiences that everyone has
dealt with at one time or another. During the team building
activities, you will learn that it takes all of the participants'
cooperation to succeed. These activities are designed to utilize
each person's talents and abilities as well as recognize effective
modes of communication and cooperation, thereby fostering the
ideals of trust, support, and responsibility.
Trees! (High element course)
air is a little thinner up there! Some elements are built to
encourage the team-building / problem solving progression by
using more than one rope system so that multiple participants
must work together to accomplish their goals. Other elements
are simply made for the individual's peak experience. APEX Adventures
engages the group as a team by involving participants as belayers,
spotters, and of course, the ever-helpful encouragement team.
Challenge by Choice (Failure-free focus)
on the course we like to employ the concept of cooperative,
non-competitive fun. APEX Adventures ropes courses are "failure-free."
Participation is determined by each participant's unique abilities
and capabilities. We respect the decision of a participant not
to attempt an element and will provide other ways for that person
to be involved in each activity. The idea of the course is to
challenge participants while maximizing their FUN!
