Low-Ropes Challenge Course

Teamwork to move students over our wallCome check out our low ropes course and watch your students build confidence in themselves, learn how to work with each other, and develop a greater sense for communication. Haliburton Forest's facilitator staff will guide students through our interesting circuit of low-ropes activities and provide challenges for students to build new skills. The low ropes course is only a short walk from base camp, where along the way you can meet our resident moose Hershe, discover our food recycling program – the pigs – and see our horses and donkey. Your facilitator will stop in our large field to play some warm up games and trust activities. Pair this activity with the Wolf Center, communication workshops, or identification hikes to make a full day at Haliburton Forest.
