Ropes Courses

Whether it’s on top of our Burma Bridge, Dual Line Bridge, Raider Bridge, Multi-vine Traverse, Zipline or swinging through the trees on our Giant Swing, our qualified and trained staff supervise and encourage campers every step of the way! On our ropes courses, campers learn new skills and gain confidence while having the time of their life!

Building self-esteem through overcoming challenges and working with friends around you are important ingredients in our camping philosophy. Mt. Gilead’s ropes course has over 10 different high and low ropes elements that are guaranteed to test campers physically and mentally. Individuals walk away from the ropes elements with a sense of accomplishment and encouragement.

Class begins with safety rules and learning how to team belay. Before you know it, you are 40 feet in the air challenging yourself like never before!

Mt. Gilead’s entire ropes course and equipment are examined annually by a third-party organization. Courses and equipment are inspected by staff everyday before activities begin and monthly by a certified Pennsylvania Ride Inspector.
