High Ropes Activities

Joy El offers several exciting options involving rope apparatus!  Choose from the Double Zip Line, 40 foot Climbing Wall, Giant Swing or Flying Squirrel.

  • Double Zip Line (all ages)
  • Giant Swing (ages 12 and up) – the excitement you remember swinging at the playground but on a much bigger level!  Requires a team effort – great for team building!
  • Challenge Course (all ages) – This 13 part course is designed for team building!  From the spiderweb to the “Peanut Butter Pit,” this course is fun for all ages but a challenge as well!
  • Cargo Net Climb
  • 40 Foot Climbing Wall (all ages)
  • Flying Squirrel (all ages) – Built from the same apparatus as the Giant Swing.  A great activity for younger campers. Also requires a group. Teach your students to work together!
