You might call ropes challenge courses the ultimate group or team challenge. Ropes courses are a combination of both vertical and horizontal challenges. They’re constructed from wood, cable and ropes installed above the ground and strung between trees, wood poles or steel framework.
When groups or individuals go up on a ropes course, they find a great opportunity to learn about risk-taking, to examine their own perceived limits, to see how they perform under pressure, and how they give and receive support from other people. They can discover how working collaboratively with others can help them achieve more than they thought they could.
Don’t look down until you reach the top! This is the chance to test your big wall climbing skills (in a safety climbing harness), assisted by trained climbing wall attendants. The 40-foot climbing wall activity can begin with the basics for those new to the sport, or for those with previous experience, continue to build on skills learned by exploring climbing technique. All climbers will take away a clearer understanding of equipment, knots and belaying.
Quantum Leap lends itself to discussion about transitions and letting go. This is an opportunity to step into a new beginning as you leap off the platform of a 35-foot pole. Getting to the platform even before your big leap may take significant effort to find the balance and trust required. The belaying and coaching provided by Meemo’s outdoor adventure specialist allows you to move through that perceived risk.
Wear close-toed sturdy shoes, preferably sneakers. You will be harnessed during these challenges so carefully consider your choice of pants. Comfortable yoga pants or longer shorts are desirable over heavier options like jeans.
As part of our ropes course experience, finish with an exhilarating zip line ride from the top of our climbing wall out over the pond. You’ll find this to be the perfect, high energy way to end your course.
If you haven’t experienced the heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping thrill of chasing and being chased while someone is trying to “shoot” you, well, it’s time! Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned veteran of the game, a round of paintball will provide fantastic fun while giving you a thrilling test in skill, courage and cunning.
This is a great activity for corporate groups, families, social and sporting clubs or groups of friends. Please wear comfortable clothing and sturdy footwear. Meemo’s will provide protective gear.
