Camp Tanako, the United Methodist camping center near Hot Springs, has opened its high ropes challenge course, which was made possible through a grant from the United Methodist Foundation of Arkansas.

This summer’s campers can be among the first to take advantage of the climbing tower, rappelling wall, zip line, team-based challenges and more. The course is designed to move participants out of their comfort zones in a way that promotes spiritual growth and self-confidence.

The grant purchased ropes, harnesses, helmets, other hardware, and Association for Challenge Course Technology facilitator training.

The course is available for use during group retreats as well as summer camps. To schedule a time for your group, contact Kim Carter, the camp’s executive director, at director@tanako.org.
