Our exciting new low ropes course has 10 elements and is designed for individuals from Brownies to adults to learn about themselves, others and how they work with others by working through challenges together in a team.
Participants should be allowed to plan as a group, make mistakes, have a chance to correct them and enjoy their successes with little involvement from the leader. Helmets are provided and must be worn by all participants. A leader who has attended our familiarisation course must be in attendance to supervise the group. Suggested ratio of 1:8
Experience the fun of tobogganing, but without the snow using our x 8 grass sledges
