The mission of The Verona Ropes Course is to create new friendships and teamwork abilities. Self-confidence and problem-solving skills are achieved through the use of low and high elements, as well as various adventure activities.
Our programs focus on teambuilding, problem-solving, cooperation, commitment, effective communication and trust.
The indoor course contains 5 high elements which require the participant to wear a harness connected to a safety rope and belay system controlled by a trained facilitator. The high elements are meant to tie everything together and push the participants both physically and mentally in a safe and controlled environment. Portable low elements are available and can be used inside or outside depending on the weather. This allows us to run a full day program completely indoors if necessary. These low elements are designed to be completed as a group or in smaller teams. All of these elements will require planning, teamwork and communication in order to achieve success.
We are happy to offer a hiking option now as well. There is a very nice system of hiking and biking trails in the area and we are looking to take advantage of this wonderful outdoor space. There is a trail that connects our outdoor course and our indoor course. This hike takes about 30 minutes each way. One option would be to start at the outdoor course and hike to the indoor course to end the day. Longer hikes are available upon request. Please see the trail map or visit www.hilltopconservancy.org for more information on the area.
Use of the ropes course requires a reservation. Bookings must be made at least two weeks in advance. Programs run seven days a week depending on availability. To make a reservation please e-mail Steve Neale at email@example.com or call 973-857-4830. Payments are accepted in the form of cash, check, money order or Visa or Mastercard. Payments cannot be made over the phone.
