Due to the nature of the current Pandemic our High Ropes Course will not operate for the 2020 summer season. We will continue to operate our Low Course and Orienteering Team Building Activities. Please check back for update and don't hesitate to call or email with any questions!

 

The Dartmouth Challenge Course consists of three separate facilities located at Storrs Pond in Hanover, NH. On the courses small groups work together to complete a team challenge course with problem-solving initiatives. Each group works with an experienced facilitator who is the guide through the course. The High and Low Ropes Courses provide an opportunity to have fun, challenge yourself, and learn more about yourself and the people in your group.

What can I expect?

The Outdoor Programs Office conducts all its events within the framework of "Challenge By Choice." There will be a variety of possible ways to participate in each activity such as helping to brainstorm solutions, facilitating from an observer's position, and helping to physically execute the challenge. You will not be required to do anything which makes you feel uncomfortable, but we ask for your full participation at whatever level of challenge you choose for yourself.

Expect to be physically active and outside for the entire half-day in whatever weather we are having. A clothing/equipment list is included in the participant information sheet, to which everyone should pay close attention.

Directions and Information

Drive north on Route 10 past the golf course to the first traffic circle and take a right on to Reservoir Rd. at the playing fields - continue straight past elementary school continue on and follow the paved road into the Storrs Pond Recreation Area.

Meet at the large dirt-surface parking lot, opposite the Storrs Pond ticket shed. We will walk with you about one third of mile to the course.
