Safety and Accountability
Challenge Course Safety
The Asbury University Challenge Course is constructed of treated wood, cable and ropes, and is inspected for integrity by our staff on a quarterly basis. Each spring a Professional Vendor Member of the Association for Challenge Course Technology assesses the course, the environment, the equipment, and all Challenge Course practices.
How We Stay Accountable
The Asbury University Challenge Course holds memberships to the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) and the Association for Experiential Education (AEE). The ACCT is the national body that sets construction and safety standards for ropes course operations. The AEE is the international body which encompasses the varieties of settings and types of outdoor education programs, publishes the Journal of Experiential Education, and supports program integrity with peer review and accreditation. Our construction and program practices are well within the guidelines established by these organizations.
