Early on during summer camp, all campers are introduced to the Confidence Course. The course builds endurance and upper body strength. Although this course is a series of physical obstacles to negotiate, the underlying purpose of the course is to develop confidence in each camper. Each young man will learn to handle the physical demands as well as overcome their fear of heights that many initially face.
Campers will learn to appreciate the special names that give some insight to them, such as the Stairway to Heaven, the Tough Nut and the Tough One. Participants that have completed the course have a special appreciation for the names! The confidence course serves each camper well during later events, such as rappelling and high ropes course.
