High Ropes Challenge Course
Activities >>High Ropes Challenge Course
Mountain Meadow Ranch is very proud of the success so many of our campers have experienced from the Low and High Ropes Challenge Course. It is also one of the most popular activities offered at our summer camp.
The Low Ropes Course includes more than 10 different elements and is designed primarily for groups of campers to use. As the group works together to accomplish the various objectives unique to each element, campers learn the dynamics of problem-solving and as part of a team they learn their distinctive role within each group and their potential for leadership. Ultimately the kids experience both individual and corporate success. This facilitates a tremendous opportunity for personal and community growth. Some of the end results we have seen are a camper's insight into the role of an individual as an integral member of a team, a realization of their potential for leadership and a great sense of both personal and group accomplishment.
Our High and Low courses are inspected and approved annually by Project Adventure. Similarly at the High Ropes Course, campers have the opportunity to test themselves and really push their limits within well supervised, safe and controlled constraints. Up as high as 50’ in huge Ponderosa pines, kids may attempt all or one of eighteen different elements. The names of some of these thrillers speak for themselves. Favorites include the Pamper Pole, Mad Max's Multi-Vine, Pan's Disappearing Plank, The Caterpillar Climb, Hanging Climbing Wall, Big Foots Giggle and Jacob's Ladder. Professionally supervised by our summer camp counseling staff, all elements of the High Ropes Course are attempted with the aid of a belayer and onlookers cheering moral support. These elements are a tremendous challenge to the kids physical, emotional and mental abilities. Upon completion, campers leave the High Ropes on one of California's longest zip lines. Measuring over 800 feet in length, the kids embark on a truly euphoric flight out of the forest and on across the meadow beyond.
This California summer camp program became so popular that we recently added a second High Ropes course which includes a high climbing wall and other elements for more experienced and adventurous campers.
