As an adult, you don’t have too many opportunities to leap off a telephone pole or fall back into a zipper of hands (read: trust fall). But if there is one thing that every camper encounters, it’s a brush with the ropes course. So whether or not you sign up for Camp Crafts, you will end up on Echo Bluff surrounded by wooden posts and wires. The ropes course is all about taking risks and trusting people and things outside of your control. I can still remember my first trust fall and the empty feeling in my gut before the hand zippers caught me.
