The video shows the various activities in which we participated. Collectively, the activities can be used by students and staff to enhance trust, teamwork, leadership, adventure, communication, support, common cause, problem solving, testing the limits, risk-taking, confidence, courage, encouragement, and shared experience.
Thanks to Janice Bates-West for facilitating the meeting, Darlene Rappa and Colin Long for facilitating the Ropes Course, and Mr. Jimmy Walker for making the Ropes Course an asset of Carteret County Schools.
Folks in the schools and community who wish to use the Ropes Course may do so by contacting Clara Roberson at Central Office.
