When the weather outside is biting.......

The summer may have come and gone, (although its still feeling pretty summer like today at 84') but we know that the good weather won't last forever!

Even when the mercury drops, we can still run programs out on the Ropes Course, all that is needed are some willing participants and some extra layers of clothing. To reward those brave ones who come out to us in the colder season we are offering special rates along with some hot chocolate to warm you up!

Call 301 834 6140 to discuss bringing your group out to the ropes course in November or December and don't forget your hat and gloves!

Ropes Course Open day a sucess

On Sunday 5th October we held an open day on the ropes course to enable smaller groups and individuals the opportunity to come out to the course and experience a 4 hour program.

It was a perfect fall day with bright blue sunny skies. All of the attendees had a great time and tried many of the activities for the first time that day. Starting on the lower elements on the course to build up confidence the group worked well together, progressing to the higher elements including the 600ft long zip line through the trees.

The group exchanged experiences and stories over the included picnic lunch, while taking in the beautiful surroundings that the course is set in.

The finale to the day was to climb the 20ft 'leap of faith' pole and jump from the top to catch the trapeze bar. It was a little windy up on top of the pole, but this didn't put off the 'jumpers' who gave their best shot at catching the trapeze!

We look forward to arranging another open day so that more people can experience the course for themselves.
