Eagle's Eyrie Challenge Course

students on the catlin gabel challenge course

Like many outdoor adventures, the Catlin Gabel challenge course pushes participants out of their comfort zone and into areas of learning and growth.

Located in the woods on campus, the course was designed and built according to national guidelines and standards. Catlin Gabel faculty and staff members have been trained in the operation and safety of the individual elements. The course has nine low elements, including a wood, cable, and rope course with platforms just above the ground.

The course includes a variety of common challenge course elements, such as the Bridge is Out, Life Boat, Nitro Swing, Spider Web, and All Aboard.

Opportunities for Self-Discovery and Team Growth

The challenges require group focus, and participants must engage in collaborative problem-solving to accomplish each task. Group activities on the course can be an effective way to build team interdependence, open channels of communication, and strengthen relationships. Participants develop risk-taking skills while exercising group-safety strategies.

Challenge course activities provide an environment that is full of new experiences and personal discoveries, with opportunities for self-discovery and team growth. The facilitator works with participants to debrief, reflect, and focus on teamwork.
