Climbing

Audience: Anyone
Additional Fee: $150.00

Start out on the state-of-the-art COPE course at Camp Geiger. A full low course with team building events surrounds the high course. The iconic feature is a 65 foot climbing/repelling tower. Attached are a number of high course events all 55 feet off the ground. The course also features two zip-lines. One challenges the experience of a roller coaster dropping from the top of the first hill. The second is a 500 foot flight. By the time you leave Geiger for more challenges, you will be ready to help with a course yourself to complete COPE Instructor Certification.

Then travel to northwest Arkansas to challenge yourself to climbs on live rock. Don't know what live rock is? This is climbing on natural rock cliffs with some great repelling opportunities.
