Why a Rope Course?
Our rope course is the perfect physical and emotional activity for children and their families. Built on two levels, it accommodates children of all ages and abilities allowing them to overcome their fears and push the limits of their potential.
There are many publications that support the therapeutic benefits of the use of rope courses for the holistic development of all children. Self-efficacy, self-confidence, locus of control (the ability to believe he/she can change his/her own destiny), self-control, development of hand-eye coordination, and self-awareness are only a few benefits of such courses.
Combine the value of the rope course with St. Mary’s stunning architecture, and you’ll understand the Dragon’s Den’s ability to inspire hope and create success. It provides a rare opportunity for all children, but especially for those in neighborhoods on the rebound from economic destabilization.
