Challenge Course

Mt. Lebanon Adventure Programs

Consent/Release for Challenge Course and Zip Line

Bring your team or organization to experience Mt. Lebanon’s adventure programs.

Develop Critical Thinking and Teamwork.

Critical Thinking

Think outside the box. It’s not just challenging, it’s fun. In a world where everything is about perspective, learn to see things from a different point of view. Build bridges, balance structures, think your team over a ten foot wall. While on the adventure courses you will have to stretch more than your muscles, you will stretch your mind as well.

Teamwork

Trust, confidence, communication: these are skills that will be strengthened as your team completes the high and low ropes adventure elements at Mt. Lebanon. Groups from churches, schools, and non-profits utilize the camp’s adventure program to learn more about themselves, and how to work together to achieve mutual goals.

Challenge by Choice

Whether falling into teammate’s arms or jumping from a 35’ pole, participants are challenged both physically and mentally as they complete the adventure elements. The facilitators help participants try new feats and face their fears. These extraordinary opportunities strengthen participant’s decision making skills in their day to day encounters.

Contact our Challenge Course Manager to discuss how we can help your team! Whether it be an afternoon getaway from the office or a weekend retreat, we can help you design the event to challenge your group and meet your needs.

Challenge Course Activities Available:

 

Zip Tower

50 steps up a spiral staircase to stand on top of the 4 story tower to see a panoramic view of the DFW area.  Step off with a short drop that levels out the further down the 250ft long cable.  Share it with a friend as they zip beside you on one of 4 lines

45 zips/hr. per side of tower; 90 zips/hr. if both sides needed

Alpine Tower

50ft high hourglass pole structure creating a unique climbing challenge for 6 participants with a variety of climbing obstacle that can be done independently, partners, or as a team.  Some say that they can just imagine it is like climbing the mast of a pirate ship.

Climbing Tower

4 vertical walls of various grips and rock hold used to climb and reach the summit. 8-10 climbers at one time using an auto belay to bring each climber down from their highest point.  Each side can race each other, or the blindfolds can come out to create a great team building activity where communication is key.

Traverse

Continue the journey from the top the Climbing Tower to the 4 stage high rope course off the tower which
includes a postman walk, Lilly pad, catwalk, and vine walk to return back to the tower.  Then rappel down the side of the tower to land back at ground level.

Power Pole

Climb the pegs of a single vertical pole and stand on the small top to give you as much height advantage to jump and touch the suspended ball just out of arms reach in front of you.  Your team will be holding your safety line that will lower you back down to the ground.

Swing by Choice

Suspended by a steel cable, the team will use a haul line, taking you to the height chosen. At which point you will pull the release and let the giant swing begin with a fresh breeze in the face.  The higher they go, the longer they drop. Know your ability and challenge yourself one more step further, it’s your choice.  Great team activity where the participant trusts the team to pull them up.

Low Ropes Course

Elements and Structure are used to challenge the team to discover something new about themselves, the team, and how they fit with-in the team.

Team Building Challenges

Unique games presented by the facilitator customized to progressively challenge the group through various stressors that will require them to bond together to overcome.
