Very few experiences allow participants to combine the thrill-of-a-lifetime with the challenge of teamwork and the opportunity for practical application. The Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Reality Oriented Physical Experiences Program provides an outdoor educational environment that develops the skills of an effective communicator, competent problem-solver, self-directed learner and responsible citizen. Participants are taught these skills through warm-up games, initiatives and low and high challenge course elements while being guided by a trained facilitator. The level of participation is voluntary at all times; challenge by choice is the motto. Click any of the images below to learn more.

Youth & Young Adults
Developing the next generation of leaders is an awesome task. The Cy-Fair ROPES program is poised to address this task in a creative way. The courses provide a unique opportunity for teamwork, self-reflection, and physical challenges.
  • Improved confidence and self-esteem
  • Development of problem-solving strategies

Corporate & Civic Organizations
Teamwork is not limited to the playing field. Companies benefit from experiential learning as staff members work together to solve challenges on the course. The challenges strengthen working groups and pay dividends back at the office.

Civic organizations typically bring together people from varied backgrounds drawn together for a common purpose. The Cy-Fair ROPES courses offer innovative ways of addressing problem-solving and communications issues. We tailor your experience to meet your specific needs.
  • Improved morale

  • Refined problem-solving skills

We have the ability to design classroom instruction on a variety of topics. Please discuss your organizational needs and goals with our trained program specialist when you call to set up your event.

Social Gatherings
Use the ROPES program to provide a dynamic twist to birthday parties, family reunions, or any other social gathering. The varied atmosphere offers something for everyone and includes:
  • The opportunity for a unique social gathering
  • Options to design the event to meet your specific needs
  • The potential to adapt the activities for a wide range of ages and abilities (starting at nine years old)
  • A "challenge by choice" philosophy, which allows each individual participating to reach personal goals
  • A unique balance of social activities with hands-on engagement to maintain varied interest levels

Warm-Up Games and Initiatives
Games are chosen that promote teamwork, communication and trust. The initiatives are problem-solving tasks that require the whole group to make decisions. Leadership skills are developed as each person gives and receives input.

Low Elements
Slightly elevated off the ground, these activities require participants to employ their sense of balance, cooperation, trust and teamwork. Participants learn to make a plan, organize according to the plan and execute the plan.

High Elements
High elements are constructed of cables and wood 30 to 40 feet off the ground. The participant is secured to a belay rope for safety at all times. High elements are more physically demanding and require more focus.

Challenge By Choice
Some participants will choose to experience all elements offered, while others will choose to support the group with encouraging words and physical support when needed. Each level of participation encourages an opportunity
