Low ropes ins an outcome based program that allow students to develop group skills such as teamwork, sharing ideas, communication, trust, problem solving, patience and leadership. This program is for groups of 75 people or less.

Curriculum Connections: Health and Physical Education, Leadership and Recreation

This program uses physical and metal challenges to help establish positive group dynamics. The challenges are designed to improve interpersonal skills and help students overcome barriers to personal and group growth. Our fun and challenging activities will reinforce themes of support, leadership, communication, feedback, creative problem solving and group decision making. Your students will begin to develop a sense of belonging, build trust and learn to support eachother. Please note that low ropes is only offered in April to November and is weather sensitive. We require a 1:15 ratio of staff to students as we require a teacher with each working group for low ropes and 1:20 if half day only.

Team building can be offered as a stand-alone half day program.
