Challenge Course

Ropes Course at Crowder Lake

ropes-courseSWOSU operates an extensive Challenge Course with both low and high elements designed to enhance group cohesion, communication skills, trust, problem solving abilities, self-confidence, and leadership. The high course elements radiate from a central tower with three different cable traverses, a balance walk across a telephone pole, and a four-foot jump at heights of up to 50 feet above the ground. The high course concludes with a harrowing 100-yard cable zip from 50 to 10 feet in a matter of seconds. The course also includes a power pole. This activity involves jumping from the top of a telephone pole and grabbing a trapeze bar. The outer walls of the central tower are used for rappelling and a climbing gym is located inside.

Other programs available include basic or advanced rappelling instruction, anchor building, climbing, canoeing and sailing.

Crowder Lake University Park has a no alcohol policy.
