The High Ropes Challenge Course program provides students, faculty, staff, and the local community a distinctive resource through which to engage in the outdoors, build relationships, develop leadership skills, and participate in shared group experiences. Just three miles from campus, the La Casita Ropes Course is very accessible for student organizations and staff departments for half-day or full-day retreats and community building events. Students interested in working on the course as a paid facilitator are encouraged to take the training required, a .5 credit class offered through the Pomona P.E. department.
Ropes course participants gain skills in a variety of ways during the program from community engagement and environmental awareness to engaging others in action. These skills add to the breadth of experience for students as they attend school and help foster a cohesive environment for staff departments. The ropes course program is often coupled with the following benefits:
- Group Bonding
- Decision Making Skills
- Growing Resiliency
- Personal Responsibility and Risk Taking
- Fun and Excitement!
