  • Go Ape
    You might have been ziplining before—but chances are it wasn't on a skateboard. Luckily, Go Ape is ready to remedy that oversight, offering ziplines ridden via specially wired boards at some of its parks. It's part of Go Ape's ongoing effort to make its courses unique from any others in the country. For starters, you don't just zipline—you conquer a course that includes rope ladders, swings, bridges, and other crossings. As you navigate the courses, you're heading higher into the treetops, seeing parks from vantage points that would otherwise be inaccessible. Thousands of feet of zipline bring you back down to Earth more effectively than trying to build an elevator in a nearby tree. Safety is just as important as adventure. Each excursion begins with a 30-minute safety briefing, and instructors constantly patrol the grounds. Guests can move at their own pace, making a trip to Go Ape an ideal team-building adventure for corporate and school groups. And every zipline trip helps the environment as well—Go Ape gives a portion of their proceeds to the public parks they call home.

  • The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring
    The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring's 13 courses are color-coded by difficulty level, from yellow for beginners to double black diamonds for experts. They aren't ski trails, though—they're climbing challenges. More than 150 platforms adorn 5 acres of trees, which participants trek among by way of cable, wood, and rope bridges, as well as ziplines. A short safety briefing precedes all excursions, covering how to use the included gear and harnesses. The park's main courses aren't the only place to test climbing skills. Over in the Monkey Grove, visitors can scale 10 trees fastened with the footholds and grips of a classic rock wall. Younger climbers, meanwhile, can explore The Labyrinth, a small, contained structure featuring more than 40 junior-sized versions of the park's other challenges. The courses illuminate on select Glow-in-the-Park evenings, when food, live music, and hoot-owl choruses await climbers upon their return to terra firma.

  • The Siege Race
    A hardcore runner might laugh at the idea of a race that's only five miles long––until they realize the course has more than 25 obstacles designed to challenge the runners' physical and mental strength. That's the Siege Race, an event designed by elite law enforcement to help athletes feel more courageous and confident in their abilities. The obstacles include everything from scaling walls and inclined monkey bars to challenges such as climbing cargo nets and carrying weighted poles. Participants aren't required to conquer each obstacle, but those wanting to give it their best try can sign up for pre-race training events where trainers help runners practice on the actual obstacles.

To facilitate these efforts, a team of ACA-certified guides helms seasonal outdoor-adventure and educational programs. In warm weather, activities might include kayaking and canoeing down winding stretches of the Potomac River or paddling to a private island filled with ropes-challenge courses and other obstacles. Fishing and ecological-study programs present even more varied ways to explore the water. Other adventures include the year-round, such as backpacking; the cold weather, such as caving; and the whimsical, such as the annual haunted forest where ghosts and ghouls mingle under a zip-line course.
