Challenge Ropes

TAFE SA’s Challenge Ropes course is a safe and fun way to take on challenges that lead to personal and professional growth. Small group settings are ideal for exploring skills such as leadership, problem solving, team building, trust and communication.

Challenge ropes programs can be tailored to suit groups from four to 25 people, focusing on specific outcomes, which we can relate to workplace, school or life situations.

Our full-day program includes activities such as:

  • name games and icebreakers
  • initiative
  • trust
  • high ropes - six elements of varying difficulty, plus the ‘leap of faith’. Includes belay school. 

Shorter programs can be arranged using a selection of these elements.
