Q. What should I wear?
A. You should dress comfortably for the weather. You will be outside the entire day, so wear clothing you don't mind getting dirty. There is a little climbing involved on the high elements. so we recommend wearing loose fitting pants or shorts. We also recommend that you avoid wearing open-toed shoes or sandals.
Q. Should I bring anything?
A. Yes, there are a few things we ask you to bring with you to the course.
Q. What if it rains?
A. We usually don't cancel for rain, unless it is severe or if lightening is seen or reported. A light to moderate rain is seen as merely another challenge to overcome on the course, rather than a hindrance. We have a set of activities that can be completed indoors in case of rain that utilize the rock wall and other facilities at University Recreation.
Q. Do I have to be physically fit
A. No! Your success on the challenge course depends very little on your fitness level and our instructors are very good at adopting challenges to a wide variety of ability levels. We do appropriate some advance notice however, if there are special accommodations we need to make or some special circumstances we should be aware of.
Q. What should I expect?
A. A typical one-day program includes participation in activities such as icebreakers, trust falls and low elements in the morning. These activities help individuals build trust and become a more effective team. During the afternoon, participants will learn how to belay one another using climbing equipment, and will then work in teams, belaying each other on several high elements.
