Ropes Course

Our high ropes course is a challenging and exciting series of events staged 40 feet off the ground around our climbing tower.  Trained staff members lead campers of all ages through the Burma Bridge, Postman’s Walk, Catwalk, Cargo Net Traverse, Zip-Line or any of eleven additional elements. 


A Special Activity

While the Ropes Course is not among the activities of instruction, it is a special activity typically done in cabin groups to further strengthen the bonds and community inside the cabin.

As with all activities at High Rocks, the ropes course is challenge-by-choice, and allows campers to push themselves to extend their own circle of comfort at their own pace.  For some, the diverse elements high off the ground offer plenty of opportunities to be challenged.  For others, simply going to the top of the tower and coming down via the zip line is a major accomplishment.  In either case, the main aim of the ropes course is to let campers “step out on a wire” in a safe environment and to show them firsthand the power of a team-oriented, supportive environment.


The camp provides a loving and supportive environment with a low counselor to camper ratio and amazing activities. The location is perfect and kids get to try many new things. They also grow in independence, responsibility, and skills. It is a great place for kids to have fun while learning more about themselves.

Join us on our high-flying adventure. As part of our ropes course, our Zip Line is a popular choice! Campers zip right off our climbing wall and soar over our horse pasture. It takes a little courage to launch off, but the joy of soaring is well worth it!
