Ohio University

Challenge Program


The Outdoor Pursuits Challenge Program is the leading provider of adventure-based team and leadership development programs in Southeast Ohio.

Our program facilitators will focus on team development goals such as problem-solving, trust, a positive work environment, collaboration and effective communication. Some challenges will be mental, some are physical, but all will create an engaging experience that lets you tackle real teamwork topics in a fun and productive way.

High Ropes Course

Enhance Communication, Build Camaraderie, Energize Your Team.

Participants climb the tower and traverse up to eight interconnected elements suspended over 40 feet in the air. Individuals step out of their comfort zone while their group encourages them, creating a meaningful shared experience. All participants will exit the course via our 300-foot zipline or guided rappel.

Pricing and duration can be found in the rates table at the bottom of the page.

The Zip Line

Climb a cargo net to the top of the high ropes course tower and take a ride on our 300-foot zipline. The zipline is a great introduction to the high course because it's the perfect mix of challenging and fun.

Enhance Communication, Build Camaraderie, Energize Your Team.
