We’re excited to bring this new weekly program to teen participants this fall!
September 12, 19, 26
October: 10, 17, 24
(including $50 non-refundable deposit)
Life Adventure Center is excited to offer our first ever Adventure Skills course. This 6-week program is geared towards high school aged individuals with an interest in learning more about challenge course activities. We will meet Tuesdays from 3:45p to 6p excluding the first week in October. We will offer transportation from Woodford County High School at 3:30p for those who need transportation. We’ll focus on competence, confidence, and contribution while learning about belaying, useful knots, facilitation, and experiencing the elements offered here at Life Adventure Center. By the last week, you can expect to have more knowledge and skill in challenge course activities as well as some new friends!
Our trained staff will intentionally sequence resilience building programs to best meet your group and/or individual needs. We will communicate specific details about any gear or extra items we recommend bringing roughly 2 weeks prior to your on-site experience. For all programs, we recommend wearing clothes you are comfortable moving around in and wouldn’t mind getting dirty. Close-toed shoes are required for all Challenge Course activities. We also recommend bringing a refillable water bottle for the day or length of the program. As always, any activity on our property is challenge by choice, meaning if at any point you do not feel comfortable during the experience you can opt out. We will support your journey, but you get to pick its destination. Please feel free to ask any additional questions or share any relevant information prior to your program date with us.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear or not wear?
You should wear: Sturdy and comfortable shoes (sneakers or boots) with good traction. Loose, comfortable clothing that is suitable to the season and that you do not mind getting dirty.
Please do not wear:
What if the weather is bad?
It is very possible that we will be out on the course in the rain. Your adventure will not be canceled because of rain; it will just become more fun…that is, if you are prepared with a rain jacket! Consider wearing a hat. A baseball hat can keep the sun off your head on hot days and a fleece hat can be pulled over your ears on cold days. If it is colder, it would be a good idea to wear gloves or mittens. The only weather that would require us to cancel or reschedule your Challenge Course experience would be lighting, high winds or any other weather that would make it unsafe to be out in the woods.
How safe is a challenge course?
Your physical and emotional safety is our primary concern. Our facilitators have been trained in best practice standards and procedures that make this facility as safe as possible. Our safety policy is congruent with and adheres to a strict industry standards and includes regular examination of all challenge course elements and practices.
What if I don’t like heights?
You may be on our course and never be offered the choice of leaving the ground. “Choice” is the key word, however. In all of our activities each participant is allowed to participate to the level of their choosing. In the event that your chosen challenge does not involve climbing, there are plenty of roles our staff may offer to you.
