Information About the Optional Ropes Course

The ropes course is a fantastic and fun teambuilding activity. The day will include group games, wall climbing, and both low and high ropes elements. A day of ropes course challenges your physical, mental, and emotional stamina.  The team building exercises provide a great foundation of trust and collaboration for yourself and your classmates.  This is a great chance to try new things, and to identify and break through challenges – a key component of becoming a more effective manager.
