Challenge course


The Pisgah Program has a premier ropes course spreading over 50 acres of woods just outside of Beaver Falls, PA (40 miles north of Pittsburgh, PA and 40 miles east of Youngstown, OH). The course includes both high and low ropes courses, a variety of other high and low elements, as well as a number of initiatives.

Purpose

Our Challenge Course experiences are specifically designed to meet your group's goals. It is our hope that the individuals within your group will learn, grow, and be stretched in a number of ways in order to have a meaningful experience. We custom design half-day, full-day, multi-day, and portable challenge experiences based on achieving your group's goals.

Who Do We Accommodate?

The Pisgah Program is designed to accommodate a diverse population of participants. In the past, we have provided facilitation for; athletic teams, college, high school, corporate staff teams, church youth groups, mission trips, leadership development, marriage enrichment, drug and alcohol prevention, and more! The minimum group size required for an event is ten participants. In the past, we have facilitated groups in excess of 100.

Safety

Regardless of whether participants are up in the air on a high element or taking part in an initiative on the ground, we strive to keep everyone both physically and emotionally safe.   

Here are some of the ways the Pisgah Program Challenge Course keeps safety a number one priority.

  • Yearly inspection of all equipment and gear according to The Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) standards
  • Yearly safety report evaluating each individual incident during the past 
  • Necessary changes are made to equipment and facilitation style in accordance with the yearly safety report
  • Ropes are logged and inspected after every use
  • Risk Management plans are in place for every event conducted
  • Facilitators are trained to be safety conscience and maintain current CPR certification

What Others Have Said…

"The Pisgah Program is a must!  Learning is absolutely more fun and more potent through the experiential environments created by the facilitators of the program.  Whether its team building or trust building that you are after, this is the place to experience it.  I have personally grown as a leader and as a team member through this program. I know you will as well." Dave Fleming--Pastor/Leadership 

"As a coach you are continually searching for ways to develop teamwork.  I decided to use the PISGAH program to kick start our season.  I was truly impressed with the professional atmosphere and the impact it made on my team.  We learned trust, dedication, and putting others first.  The principles that we taught on that day lasted all season.  During the NCCAA National Tournament at the end of regular season we were drawing on our PISGAH experience and how to apply it in our game.  What an impact!"  Chelle Fuss -- Geneva College Softball 

"We have used the Pisgah Program for several years now and have found it to be an excellent environment to foster leadership development skills, and a servant heart mentality for our interns." Jace Ransom --Director of Cross Trainers

“A great day from start to finish. The weather was perfect, the kids all had a great experience and are already asking when they can do this again. A first class program from facilities to facilitators! Thanks a lot.”

-John Burnett, Karns City High School Teacher at Peer Leadership Day

“I really appreciate your work to help our youth group have an outing on the 26 th . I think that the experience will help us in the long run, especially me. I had all sorts of insight into the youth. I am really excited about how I can plug them into roles more now that I understand them more. I like how the course is set up. Thank you again for your help.”

-Alan Graf, Living Waters Community Church Youth Pastor

 

“What a wonderful day. The kids and I had so much fun, and we were challenged throughout the day in many aspects. All goals were achieved… and then some!! Facilitators were great. Their leading and debriefing was especially excellent. They offered tremendous insight and drew very real analogies between our activities on the course and our walk with Christ.”

- Chad Agnew, Level Green Church Student Ministries Pastor
