Camp Dakota's ropes course and zip lines test the coordination, grip, and grit of tree-swinging cable climbers in the scenic foothills of the Cascade Mountains. In the high-flying ropes course, customers utilize expert instruction, safety gear, and encouragement to overcome any personal limitations or fear of sailor knots. The ropes course hosts 2–6 participants at a time, or groups of up to 12 if scheduled for both the ropes course and zip lines together.
After climbing the canopies, customers stay strapped in to embark on a thrilling treetop zip-line voyage. As line zippers feel the swift rush of wind from the safety of their harnesses, they'll absorb scenic views of the earth's leaf poles and reminders of humans' former ability to fly.
Tucked away in the foothills of the Western Cascade Mountains, Camp Dakota flouts the constraints of gravity with high-flying adventures that test participants' skills, stamina, and propensity to scream at high altitudes. Suspended steel ziplines whiz above the forest canopy as squirrels wave from nearby branches and passing meadowlarks pause for fist bumps. Teamwork trumps individual heroics on the high-ropes course, whose elevated, threaded obstacles sway precariously above the distant ground.
The aerial odyssey doesn't stop there. Instructors supply safety harnesses and words of encouragement before leading the way to a vertical rock-climbing wall. Replete with slim footholds and perturbed mountain goats, the wall poses a challenge to climbers of all abilities, who take solace in the added safety of fully automated belays.
