||This is not only an excellent team building exercise,
but is always a general good time. We'd recommend this to any
troop that happens to be in the area.
To get the full set of details about this ROPES course, we'd encourage
you to visit the
web site for Clark Sports Center, or to give them a call. They
have two courses... one inside above the pool (shown here) and one outside,
that we're looking to try some day.
There are several stations along the length of the pool, starting with
the climb up the rope ladder. You end up about 30 feet above the pool,
and are nicely attached to a safety harness for the entire time you are up
there. In fact, safety was a very big theme throughout our time there,
starting with very solid instruction.
Sarah D. was the first person up and over; good for her! It made
it kinda hard for any of the boys to chicken out after having seen a girl do
At the end of the course, you had a choice of whether you wanted to be
lowered down, or be dropped directly into the deep pool. Since the
heat at the top was on the order of 90 with high humidity, it gave great
incentive to take the plunge.
There were so many pictures taken, that I've just allowed them to exist
free-form a the bottom of this page. Enjoy.
