Adventure Based Learning Experience
KNOW THE ROPES
(one day per week for 6 weeks)
Know the Ropes is the most accommodating of any of the ABLE courses and is a great course for students who are not interested in an extended trip. While being encouraged to go further than they think they can, students can choose their own level of difficulty.
The Know The Ropes course takes place locally at sites off campus, such as the Westtown School. To begin, there are group challenges that start out easy and low to the ground. As the course progresses, the activities get more challenging and higher off the ground. Each individual can choose his or her level of height and difficulty, but everyone is expected to take on significant challenges at their level.
While this course does not involve an extended trip, it does take place during school days. Students are required to attend five days of the course unless they are canceled due to weather. Most courses also include one day that is not a class day for other courses, such as parent conference day.
The course includes a series of regular class meetings and 6 all-day trips that will occur on school days and non-school days in October and November.
