Elon's low ropes course at the Elon Challenge Course consists of 16 fixed elements and numerous team-building initiatives that physically and mentally engage participants in teambuilding exercises. Group members must work together by contributing ideas, support, and effort to complete the challenges. Participants are guided through a reflective process at the end of each activity that helps them apply insights from the exercise to other life situations.
Every Challenge Course experience is different: you can learn something new about yourself and your group every time you participate. We do our best to insure that your custom-designed itinerary will both meet your group's goals and also provide new challenges for the participants.
The low ropes course is great for organizations at any stage of development. No special skills or physical abilities are required- this is an experience that is available to anyone!
Each group is required to have a faculty or staff member in attendance with them during their ropes course experience. This individual is not required to participate in the challenge course events.
All participants must sign a waiver of liability. Participants under the age of 18 must have their form signed by a parent or guardian.
The Elon Challenge is a free resource for Elon University groups of up to 30 participants. A nominal fee will be charged groups larger than 30 members to cover the cost of additional facilitators.
