The ropes course & teambuilding out at Camp Ketcha are a fun, adventurous and
exciting time for all! We offer 2 different options for you to choose from: Low
Ropes Course, and High Ropes Course. The duration of the youth outing is 2 ½
hours. This is a shortened teambuilding program from our school and
professional development programs meant specifically for youth groups, girl
scouts, boy scouts, homeschool programs and extracurricular after-school
activities.
Low Ropes Course :
Ages 8+
Programs can be scheduled April 1st through November 1st for up to 10 children. An additional $12.00 per child
and up to 2 additional children allowed.
Enjoy a 2 ½ hour ropes course program. A ropes course facilitator will lead a number of field initiatives and
challenges from “Star Wars” to “Who Stole My Chicken!” The program will move to the low ropes course and
cover elements such as the “Peanut Butter Pit” and “Grandma’s Porch.” All of our low elements are either on the
ground or up to 6” off the ground. They do involve some swinging, lifting, and spotting. Children must be ages 8
and above.
High Ropes Course :
Ages 8+
Programs can be scheduled April 1st through November 1st for up to 10 children. An additional $12.00 per child
