What Participants Get From a High Ropes Program

By Jeffery

In October 2017, the Eagle Crest Adventures facilitating team passed out a questionnaire to more than 100 participants attempting our high ropes program. Below are some of the best responses to the final question.

As a result of today, one thing I plan to do differently in my everyday life:

  • Keep pressing the envelope and pushing forward.
  • Attack more goals with confidence.
  • Lead more.
  • Be more inspirational.
  • Try new things.
  • Appreciate life.
  • Believe more in myself.
  • Be more honest.
  • Take risks.
  • Stop telling myself I can’t do things.
  • Be more outgoing.
  • Know that I can do more than I feel I can.
  • Take life one step at a time.
  • I plan to try new things and not be scared.
  • Try things that are scary and I may not have tried before. Thank you!
  • Push through tasks.
  • Encourage others.
  • Challenge myself more.
  • Look at hard things differently.
  • Help others more.
  • Be more positive.
  • Be a little more adventurous.
  • Get out of my comfort zone.
  • Reach higher.

One time a youth leader called me three years after a high ropes event to tell me that one of students was dramatically changed after doing our high ropes program. His grades improved. He rose up to become a student leader. He was willing to step out of his fear and try.

Outcomes are not guaranteed, but I believe it is well worth the try! Email me at, and we can set up a day event or overnight retreat for your group.  To learn more about high ropes programs, click here.
