What is Vertical Adventures?
Our Vertical Adventures program boasts one of the biggest and most comprehensive challenge course facilities on the East Coast. Located at Stone Valley Recreation Area, just 17 miles from campus, we utilize four unique elements for our programming: Odyssey III (high ropes course), Alpine Tower & Giant Swing, Carolina T-Wall (outdoor climbing wall), and Team Development Course (low challenge course). See below for more information about each element.
Who is this for?
Programs at each of the four elements (or a combination of several) can be customized to meet the needs of a wide variety of types and sizes of groups. We currently serve three primary types of groups:
- Penn State (University Park) Students & Student Organizations
- Penn State (University Park) Departments
- General Public (Non-PSU or PSU Commonwealth Campus groups)
Groups that have visited us in the past include athletic teams, school groups, civic groups, businesses and organizations, summer camps, and many more. (*NOTE: We are currently not offering programs for youth or groups with minors.)
If you have a group that is looking to work on team building, problem solving, communication, trust building, or just wants a unique and exciting experience then this is a great option for you.
