Details about Camp Archbald Adventure Element Facilitation:

Low ropes: A minimum of one facilitator and an additional adult chaperone must be present in order to facilitate low ropes. Before use, instructors should inspect all equipment, course components, and landing areas. Per Safety Activity Checkpoints: Low ropes elements are appropriate for Daisies and older. Initiative games and low elements require the group to work together to accomplish mental or physical challenges; spotters safeguard the movements of each member of the group. This site-specific training is applicable to Camp Small Valley & Archbald low ropes course but is not applicable to other non-GSHPA facilities.

For the Climbing Wall: a minimum of two facilitators must always be present when using the climbing wall WITHOUT the zipline. Before use, instructors should inspect all equipment, course components, and landing areas. Per Safety Activity Checkpoints: The climbing is appropriate for Brownies and older. However, if harnesses/helmets do not appropriately fit a Brownie, she cannot participate in this activity. This site-specific training is applicable to Camp Small Valley & Archbald Climbing Wall but is not applicable to other non-GSHPA facilities.

For the Climbing Wall/Zipline: a minimum of three facilitators must always be present when using the climbing wall with the zipline. Before use, instructors should inspect all equipment, course components, and landing areas. Per Safety Activity Checkpoints: The climbing wall/zip line is appropriate for Juniors and older.

Your instructor will assign you a pass level at the end of the training.
