High Ropes

Black Rock Retreat’s High Ropes Course elements are twenty-five to thirty-five feet off the ground. A single session lasts three and a half hours, either in the morning or the afternoon.  Participants wear appropriate safety gear and are attached to the course by a belay system. The time will start with a short team building activity and end with a time of debriefing the experience.

*The High Ropes Course Program can include the Zipline and Giant Swing.
