The ROPES Course at Butler School
We work with a couple of different team building providers in the area, and one thing we have noticed is the overwhelming popularity of ROPES Course programs among both youth and adults. Many teams seem to equate ‘team building’ with ropes challenge course programming, and there is definitely a great opportunity for teams to bond and build teamwork while engaging in a low and high ropes course event. The ROPES Course is only one tool that a facilitator can use to develop teams – and is most effective when combined with multiple team development initiatives.
In an effort to design a Team Development Program that has maximum benefit to our clients, we have recently installed Low and High Elements at The Butler School in Darnestown, MD. The ROPES Course at Butler School is now accepting groups of youth (minimum age 13 years-old) and adults (both not-for-profit organizations and ‘corporate’ groups) and can either serve as a stand-alone event, or can be interwoven into a more substantial Team Development Initiative.
As a test group, we brought out a team from The Boy Scouts of America to check out the elements and run through a traditional team building program, and they had a great time.
