Chesterfield Challenge Course

 Challenge Course Header 

The Chesterfield County Challenge course is a ropes course with a graduated series of events for individuals and groups that can:

  • Present physical, psychological and social challenges
  • Boost confidence by emphasizing problem solving, team work and communication
  • Test and stretch personal limits
  • Foster positive attitudes, self-discovery and trust

No prior skills, experience or knowledge is required to participate.

Our trained facilitators follow the principle of “Challenge by Choice” – participants are encouraged to push themselves beyond their comfort zones and into their learning zone, but it will always be up to the participant to choose how far they go.

Currently the challenge course can meet the needs of a variety of groups such as: 

  • Birthday Parties
  • Classroom retreats
  • Management teams
  • Family Reunions
  • Scout troops
  • Sports teams
  • Staff training seminars
  • Teacher training

High Challenge CoursePrograms options & fees

  • Action packed half day
  • Full day with lunch break
** Fees are based on the number of people in the group and number of staff needed to run the group.
As a county parks & recreation program we are committed to equal access regardless of budget. Let us custom design a program for you!
