Challenge Courses

Note: Our challenge courses are currently closed due to COVID-19.  Please contact the Boone Family Mountain Center Building, to learn about our other adventure activities we offer at YMCA of the Rockies.

Our Challenge Course is divided into two categories: Team-Building and High Ropes.

  • Team Building: Team building elements for private groups are at ground level and consist of a fixed obstacle. The YMCA facilitator presents a problem or task and the group works together to solve it. There is no right or wrong way to solve the task as long as the group follows the given guidelines. Team Building focuses on the entire group. By working together through these tasks, group characteristics such as communication, cooperation, trust and leadership are enhanced.
  • High Ropes: High Ropes elements are 35 feet off the ground and consist of wire cables and platforms between trees. Participants are on a belay system to provide protection and safety.  High elements focus on individual goal setting and achievement.
    * Note: High Ropes is closed as we begin planning and building a new high-ropes course that is larger and will offer increased challenges for participants, will serve a greater number of guests and accommodate a broader age range.

The ideal group size is 8-15 participants per course.
