Jacob's Ladder

(Suitable for older Year 4 children and upwards)

One of our most popular courses is the Jacob's Ladder

Jacob’s ladder is a true test of co-operation, balance, co-ordination and a degree of strength. The rungs of this giant ladder get further apart the higher you climb.

The challenge is to work effectively with your partner using good communication and team work to help each other reach the top. The team will learn how to ‘belay’, as they will control the ropes; and offer support to the climbers. As well as tackle the task itself. It is very rewarding in terms of self-achievement and confidence building.
