Project Adventure FAQ’s
Do I need a ropes course to use Adventure Education in my class?
Nope! Project Adventure (PA) has several educational models such as Achieving Fitness and Creating Healthy Habits, that use either portable equipment or no equipment at all. There is a lot you can do with some basic props and training and our Program Development Team is happy to work with you to find a solution that fits your needs. Call us today to find out more.
Are high ropes elements safe?
A properly installed course and well-trained staff are very safe. When the course is not in use, there are intentional steps taken for limiting access to the elements. Further, Project Adventure is a Professional Vendor Member (PVM) of The Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) which defines and sets standards for installing, maintaining, and managing challenge courses. Project Adventure meets or exceeds all ACCT standards.
If I do want to build a ropes course at my facility, how much will it cost?
We have installed basic, low courses for as low as $15,000 and elaborate low and high ropes courses for $250,000+. The largest percentage of installations run between $30,000 and $100,000; the cost depends on a variety of factors from installation to the choice of elements included in the course. PA’s Development Team works with you to come up with plans and solutions for your specific goals.
How long will it take to install a course?
Depending on your needs and the complexity of the project, a course will typically be installed 3 months to 2 years after your very first phone call inquiring about the process. The installation itself typically lasts anywhere from 2 days to a month depending on the size and scope of the project.
What kind of training will my staff need?
The level of training your staff needs is largely dependent on what type of program you intend to offer. Investing in the training of your staff is an important factor in the overall success of your program. We are happy to come to your facility to deliver a custom program based on your needs and we encourage you to participate in open enrollment workshops hosted at several locations nationwide.
