Archery Facilitation

Put your bow and arrow skills to the test by renting one of our archery facilities and instructors for your troop!

We currently offer archery facilitation with trained instructors at Bothin, Sugar Pine, Skylark Ranch, and Twin Canyon.

Ropes Course Facilitation

Our ropes course instructors are highly-trained and qualified to lead your group through a ropes course tailored to your groups goals! All ropes course reservations include an instructor-led experience. Due to the nature of the courses and experience required, the ropes course offerings may not be rented without a GSNorCal facilitator.

Walk through the trees, cross over a creek, and you'll find a 3-level adventure course waiting for you! From team-building on the dynamic course to individual challenges on the static course and zip line, there's adventure for every girl. The course is available to rent year round, excluding the summer season (June—August).

There are no specific weight and height restrictions, but equipment must fit properly and safely in order to participate. Two adults must be present on the ground during all activities, as ropes course instructors manage only ropes activities.

Zipline

Minimum Age Requirement: 4th Grade

Perfect for first time participants! Here’s your opportunity to scale our cargo net and zip through the trees! Participants will learn about Challenge by Choice and safety equipment before experiencing our 85’ zip line!

Static Course

Minimum Age Requirement: 4th Grade

Participants traverse elements such as an incomplete bridge and a tightrope before being lowered down from 25’ by their team! This options has a longer safety introduction due to the independent nature of participants taking responsibility to attach themselves to various anchor points. These elements tend to be more of a mental challenge than a physical challenge. At Bothin, this is the portion that goes back and forth across the creek.

Dynamic Course

Minimum Age Requirement: 4th Grade

Ready for an extra challenge? Participant is attached to a dynamic rope that passes through a pulley above them and is kept tensioned by a belayer or belay team below. These elements tend to be more of a physical challenge than a mental challenge. At Bothin, this is the triple stack portion that goes up and over trees 65' in the air. Participants can try a solo element or buddy up to work together to scale the vertical playpen!

Hidden among the redwood trees in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Skylark Ranch offers a low element Challenge Course and a high element High Ropes Course for reservation. The Challenge Course is designed to bring a full team building experience to any group, and the experience continues when you climb the redwoods and participate in group activities 25 feet in the air.

The course is available to rent during the Fall (September–December) and Spring (March–May) seasons. If weather permits, some events may be scheduled during January and February.

There are no specific weight and height restrictions, but equipment must fit properly and safely in order to participate. Two adults must be present on the ground during all activities, as ropes course instructors manage only ropes activities.

Dynamic Course

Elements can be physically challenging, by the mental challenge is primary.
