Challenge Course

Our challenge course is one of the best in the Pacific North West. Hub and Spoke courses are few and far between. At every tree there is multiple ways to go, making it optimal for large groups and different skill levels.



Our Low and High Rope programs are challenge by choice. We challenge people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds through sequenced activities where participants’ emotional and physical safety comes first. Lutherwood’s Challenge Course provides opportunities for participants to develop and redefine their personal and group framework in hopes of creating healthier communities. We intentionally focus on attributes such as problem solving, goal setting, teamwork, communication, and leadership skills.

Our High Rope Elements are between 25 and 65 feet off the ground.  Participants wear a helmet and harness, and they are connected with a safety line to a belay-certified staff member and then onto our system using safety lanyards, otherwise known as lobster claws. Individually or with a partner, through the Challenge by Choice approach, choose for themselves how far they are willing to go on each element. Through this process they learn to understand their fear and develop strategies to face this fear, promoting tremendous personal growth. High ropes also foster social responsibility, as teammates on the ground must support the climber both physically and emotionally. Overall, our high ropes create powerful experiences for participants, providing a memorable, fun-filled day as well as lessons that will last for the rest of their lives.

The Lutherwood Challenge Course is separated in to three categories.

Portable: Price varies based on driving distance and group needs

These are low-ropes elements that can be transported to any given location to be approached as a team. Let us come to your classrooms, church, or office.

Low-Ropes: $20/person for two hours

These are permanent structures located around the Lutherwood property to be approached as a team.

High Ropes: $30/person for two hours

These are permanent structures that require the participants to be harnessed in as they are up to 40 feet above the ground. At Lutherwood we have two climbing walls, a vertical play pen, hub and spoke, and a 200ft zipline.

Combined Low and High ropes:  $40/person for 2 hours of low ropes and 2 hours of high ropes

This is recommended for most groups as low ropes helps build your team’s confidence and brings them together as a group before really bringing you out of your comfort zone on the high course.

Contact our challenge course manager at so that we can tailor the schedule to meet the needs of your group.

As each group is unique we try and create an experience that will meet objectives of the individual, group, and organization. Our facilitation staff works hard to create a fun and rewarding environment. This in turn allows participants to build trust and overcome barriers.

Our Low/High Ropes are utilized at camp, corporate team building, church retreats, and birthday parties, but we’re always welcome to new ideas! Our course is a great addition to any retreat at Lutherwood or as a stand alone event.

We would love to work with you to set up a transformational experience for your group. To book your group for an unforgettable experience or if you have any questions please contact us at
