  • Confidence Course

    The new and improved confidence course is filled with various engaging elements for student navigation.  Students in full harnesses will ascend to a safe height, clip in, and transverse various elements ending with a ride on the zip line.  It is REQUIRED that within the academic school year (no more than two months before the trip) at least one volunteer teacher has attended the Confidence Course training before a school’s arrival on campus.  That volunteer teacher must accompany their school AND function as the volunteer teacher at the confidence course at all times.  Those trained understand that if the required number of staff are not at the course it will be closed for the day.
