challenge Course Low Elements
Low elements are activities that start at one foot off the ground and go up to twelve feet. It is also characterized by the safety mechanism called "spotting". The goals become more complex and the group begins to take larger risks. Some low elements are valuable for teaching teamwork and cooperation, while others are concerned with balance and concentration. All the elements help foster trust, respect, care, and concern for every person. A great challenge course will have a variety of each type of element for a balanced presentation of all the skills and confidence levels in the group. Learning in a group environment can be powerful when coupled with reflection and transference into daily living situations. Many of the elements can be designed for portable and indoor use.
