Teen Adventure Program: High Ropes Challenge Course at Camp Allen

December 3: High Ropes Challenge Course at Camp Allen
$50.00 per Participant

Want to experience what it feels like to be a bird and walk among the tree tops? Join us for an exciting yet challenging adventure on the Camp Allen High Ropes Challenge Course. The challenge course at Camp Allen is a set of physical elements that provide a problem solving challenge to a group of individuals. Each program consists of activities that promote and enhance positive interaction between the members of the group. Facilitators who have been specifically trained for these activities run all of the courses.

We will meet at the Houston Zoo in front of Gate 8, which is about 200 yards to the left of the main entrance, at 7:30am and drive the Zoo van to Camp Allen located in Navasota. We will return to the Houston Zoo by 3:00pm

Please wear closed-toe shoes, and clothing that you can be active in. Be sure to bring a water bottle, lunch and anything else you may need for a day outdoors.
