Ropes Course

Camp Kinard is proud to offer both high and low ropes challenge courses focusing on team building, confidence boosting, problem solving and communication skills. Your group will benefit from our structured program with a trained facilitator leading you through building relationships and overcoming obstacles as a team.

Each session at Camp Kinard will be tailored towards the abilities and comfort level of the group. Groups using both the high and low ropes courses will also receive introductory team and ice breaker games. Half and full day sessions are available.

Low ropes often means a series of real or imaginary obstacles designed to challenge groups and individuals to work together to accomplish a task. All of these obstacles are 0'-10' off the ground and do not require the participants to wear harnesses.

High ropes, as the name implies, are elements professionally installed at heights of 25'-50'. When participants take part these elements, they are fitted with a seat or full body harness and attached to a belay line for safety.

To schedule your group's ropes course adventure, we invite you to call (803)-532-3183 or email us today!
