  • Rock Climbing at Devil’s Kitchen

    Every year we take a camp group from Pennsylvania out for three days of climbing in the Maryland and Virginia area.  The group learns and practices basic climbing techniques in a wide variety of top-roping scenarios, and ultimately learns how to run a bottom-belay, top-belay and rappel station.  The groups always do a fantastic job […]

    I am constantly amazed at what can be accomplished with a little determination.

  • Taking the Leap of Faith

    Although it has been over a decade since I facilitated my first ropes course program, I am still amazed at how powerful the experience can be. I’m not speaking of the power that I wield as a facilitator, but rather the awe that I feel when I am part of a ropes course experience.  I […]

  • Value Based Adaptation

    Early on I learned that no matter what is going on externally – economy, trends, competition, etc. – my business will only succeed if I stick to the core values that my company was founded on.  As long as my decisions stay true to these values, I am able to adapt quickly to an ever […]
