University Hosts Staff and Faculty Challenge Course Day
The Department of Recreation Services and the Syracuse University Wellness Initiative have partnered to host the SU Staff & Faculty Challenge Day on Saturday, Aug. 8, from 1-5 p.m. Staff and faculty members and their immediate family members are invited to experience the ropes course at the Outdoor Education Center on South Campus.
“We are thrilled to partner with the University Wellness Initiative to bring this exciting opportunity to staff and faculty and their families,” says Lauren Stover, outdoor education program coordinator. “The Outdoor Challenge Course is a fun, yet challenging experience that will provide our campus community members and their families with an engaging way to work together, face fears and grow personally. I am sure it is something they will not forget.”
Staff, faculty and family members must present valid SU IDs to participate, be at least 7 years old, and weigh at least 50 pounds. The registration fee is $20 per person, with subsidization provided by the Syracuse University Wellness Initiative.
Pre-registration and payment are required in order to participate. Staff and faculty can bring a check and fill out the registration form by visiting Recreation Services (241 Archbold Gym) or the University Wellness Initiative (Suite 101, Skytop Office Building). Pre-registration is due by Friday, July 24.
The Outdoor Challenge Course opened in September of 2013, and since then has offered numerous campus departments, organizations and community groups with access to an engaging team-building and wellness activity. The challenge course features high elements with both static and dynamic belay systems, including the dual zip line and triple leap of faith.
