Challenges for Growth
Updated: Jan 24, 2019
People learn more through experience than through any other method of learning. CLAS Ropes Course provides a unique blend team-building activities and high course adventure providing ample opportunity for learning.
Challenge courses teach families techniques in problem solving, leadership, human relationships, communication skill, conflict resolution, group cooperation, building self-confidence and esteem, trust, self-direction, motivation, and values. Analogies can be made to life topics, helping to increase understanding and strengthen character. These challenges for growth allow family members to view themselves as increasingly capable and competent. By attempting a graduated series of activities which involve physical or emotional risk, and succeeding (or sometimes failing) in a supportive group atmosphere, an individual may gain confidence in themselves and others. Each course is based on the assumption that anyone who conscientiously tries will be successful. Success is making an effort. A cooperative, supportive atmosphere encourages participation and boosts family morale.
