About Us

The Millersville University Ropes Challenge course provides a unique teaching environment, where diverse groups can experience varying levels of physical, mental, and/or emotional risks.  For a look at some of the activities watch the following videos: 

The Experience

The Ropes Challenge Course is a series of activities designed for individual and group participation regardless of age, physical limitation or ability level. Participants must navigate cables and ropes either individually or in their group. The experience is often both physically and mentally challenging. The goal of the program is to concentrate on individual and group skill development by navigating a series of activities, which involve physical and emotional risk, and succeeding (or sometimes failing) within a supportive group atmosphere. The challenges presented by the ropes activities enhance communication skills, cooperation, interpersonal awareness, leadership skills, decision-making, and trust-building.
