Ropes Course Teambuilding for Youth and Adults in DC/MD/VA
Unlike many of the “ropes course” programs in the area, GO-Adventures challenge course teambuilding programs emphasize the development of trust and leadership.Eriq Powers - Founder

The ROPES Challenge Course combines low ropes team building activities (physical and mental activities that build trust, enhance communication and improve problem-solving skills) with the high adrenaline challenge of the high elements (activities that take place 20 to 50 feet above the ground). The result is a high energy, teamwork-oriented event that bonds groups together through healthy risk-taking and shared adventure.
Teams of 6 to 12 participants transition through a sequence of low team building activities, designed to foster teamwork, improve problem-solving skills, and deepen trust between the members of the group. Following the low ropes activities, the team will move up to the high elements – activities that take place 20 to 50 feet off the ground. Our challenge course programs are designed specifically to foster leadership skills and the development of trust between the members of your team. Sample Low Element: Multi-Vine – the team will work together to traverse from one side of a foot cable to the other, using each other and a series of rope handles that hang down from a cable above. Sample High Element: The Leap of Faith – while the rest of your team is ‘on belay’ (holding the climber safe on a rope) a climber ascends 20 feet up a tree, climbs out onto a platform and “checks in” with teammates. If the climber is feeling confident, they will continue on to the 50-foot platform and take the leap! After arcing back and forth for a few swings, the team gently lowers the climber back down to the ground.
The ROPES Challenge Course at Butler School is our “home base” and provides opportunities for youth or adult groups with up to 50 participants to participate in either recreational team building fun, goal-oriented, experience-based team development programming.
