Using the rope provided, you can participate in infinite icebreaker and teamwork games, as well as trust building activities and many other puzzles and challenges.  This is perfect for camp counsellors, college orientation staff, managers, coaches, wilderness guides, teachers, facilitators, trainers and group leaders of all kinds.
