The climbing wall

Rappelling Platform, Climbing Wall & Ziplining:
Learn how to rappel off of our 30-foot high rappelling platform. Throughout the weekend we will have experienced climbers manning the platform. You can even try it Commando/Aussie style (upside down).

In addition to two lanes of Rappelling, we also have a 30 ft. high/ 16 ft. wide Climbing Wall. The Wall has three lanes of climbing, each with more than one route. Departing the platform is a series of 5 zip lines.

NEW for 2015 Low Ropes Course / Team Building Course. We have a new 15 station course built to challenge everyone of all ages.

Campfires:
Friday and Saturday evening will feature a bonfire (we like our fires BIG), complete with S’mores. Saturday evening will also include an ice cream bar.

Outdoor movies for the kids:
Each evening we will have an outdoor kid friendly movie. The movie will be projected onto a screen: better than a Drive-In!

Survival store:
During mealtime, we will open a small “store” where you will be able to purchase a few items that you will learn about during the weekend (so bring some cash or a check- just in case). We usually have survival whistles, fire steels, SAM splints, hanks of para-cord, knives, etc.  We will also have Logo related items like T-shirts, stickers, hats, etc.

Meal time entertainment:
During Lunch and Dinner on Saturday and Sunday, we try to provide some form of entertainment. This year we will have a demonstration of the Decontamination Tent by WellSpan's Disaster Response Team (DRT).  We will also have a demonstration by Western Maryland's K-9 Search & Rescue Team.

Survival Tricks:
At the beginning of each educational session, a survival “trick” will be demonstrated.

Past tricks included: how to turn your wristwatch into a compass, how to remove a single
strand from a section of para-cord, how to tell time using your fist, how to find the North Star, etc.

Back by popular demand will be a demonstration of Bear Spray (inside joke).
