LEAP’s Highland Adventure Course serves student groups, campus organizations, departmental and office staff groups, sports teams, work teams, and other organizations in the Lyon College and surrounding community. Our course is designed to develop team building, communication, problem solving, self-confidence, and other benefits through experiential education.
Our challenge course consists of 17 low elements, which are cabled and wooden structures approximately 1-10 feet from the ground. The HACC also has 4 high elements, which can elevate participants to heights of over 30 feet on trees, poles, cables, and platforms. All structures are maintained and inspected regularly and facilitated by qualified staff. The LEAP program strives to be compliant with Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) international standards. The HACC is FREE for any Lyon College student/staff/faculty-based program.
