THE EQUIPMENT
There's no doubt that an experience on a high challenge ropes course provides a ton of positive educational results, but . . . the initial cost of building a ropes facility and the additional expenses of maintenance and hard skills training begin to make Gil Chapa's Challenge Master's package look like a "Best Buy." Gil has put a lot of creativity and workmanship into the low challenge events he offers in a convenient "bagged" adventure package. If you are contemplating installing a ropes course, Gil's alternative is worth a look.

"I absolutely loved the hands-on training. I like how the teaching was sequenced because it kept everyone moving quickly and at the same time kept motivation up.
Katie

What a rush! Motivating, exciting and fulfilling. Should have done this years ago. The techniques and lessons presented have provided us an unequaled ability to approach any issue encountered with sound problem solving skills and unmatched teamwork. This program is a must for any school wishing to advance all programs and build staff self-esteem. It’s a blast!
Cass Brassard

I loved it- great team building for our organization & ideas for use in the community. I learned that every one of us has an important role in the group & to value each other."

I thought the training was outstanding and presented very professionally.

"This training really brought me out of my comfort zone. I learned that I can be a leader and speak my mind.
Shana Martin-Foote

My new experience wasn’t with myself, per say, but something I witnessed with another person overcoming a fear. What great achievement for [her] and for others to witness. Anonymous
I think this is a great training for co-workers to learn to listen and really be a team…to notice our co-workers and encourage them."

Gil & Nancy were very organized, knew material well and accomodated all members of the group.
Great Job!

Liz Verdi

Awesome! It will be good for using at work and really pushed me to grow personally also.

Excellent, motivating, energizing and strenuous. Brought out the athlete in me in more ways
than one.

Terry Rodriguez

Exactly the type of training my staff and I needed. We have seen these but had never been trained. This was great!
Lisa Prieto

The two presenters are excellent. You need to have experience to be effective. The trainers have a wealth of experience and knowledge. I am greatful for their commitment.

Luis Longoria

BEYOND TRAININGS
"Our program is off to a great start. We introduced [our program] to our staff. It was a HIT! The debriefing was incredible and it was such a great way to kick off our year. I have incorporated your activities into every training session that I do. They have all been such a success.

I can’t tell you enough how wonderful the training was. We’ll keep you posted!"

Debby Hewitt

"I wanted to share with you the effect that implementing low ropes early on has had. We have decreased the amount of physical altercations by over 80 %......We have a noticeable increase in platoon cohesiveness. Thank you for all your help."
Fermin Barbosa Jr.
1SG, CSMR - Commandant

"I am a high school teacher with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board in Ontario. I purchased a portable ropes kit and attended a training session with Challenge Masters. I found the experience to be invaluable and am in the process of amalgamating all the games/initiatives used with the ropes kit into our existing curriculum. I teach an alternative program for students "at-risk" of graduating and who have not been "successful" in the mainstream."
