Ropes Trek

A week filled with climbing, zipping and COPE. Wrap up the week with a day on the Nantahala River.

On Monday the group will review climbing equipment, belaying, rappelling, climbing commands, and climbing techniques while climbing and or bouldering at camp. Everything the scouts learn on Monday will be reviewed and utilized during the rest of the week at the climbing sites. Scouts who do not already have the climbing merit badge will earn the badge during the week.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be spent climbing on live rock at one of several available locations such as Looking Glass, Rumbling Bald, Ship Rock, Snakes Den, or Linville Gorge.

Thursday will be spent at the Nantahala Outdoor Center on their COPE course and Zip Line experience.

Friday will wrap up the week with a day rafting on the Nantahala, or climbing. Weather and the desire of the group will determine Friday’s program. 

NOTE: Due to the level of physical and mental maturity required with rock climbing, we recommend that all participants be at least 14 years old.  Also, the Rock School director has the right to refuse to take anyone away from camp that is behaving in an unsafe manner and might be of risk to anyone else in the group.
