Challenge Course

The Disciples Center at Tawakoni offers both high and low ropes led by trained facilitators. Low and High Ropes Initiatives are designed to promote teamwork, trust, and leadership. Trained facilitators present challenges, and the group must work together to achieve one common goal. Programs and challenges can be tailored to meet specific group needs.

In both Low and High Ropes activities, participants work to improve both verbal and non-verbal communication skills. The level of participation is determined by the individual. Debriefing sessions after each activity help participants process the decision-making strategies used and apply the situation to real life.
