Camp Long Challenge Course : low course facilitator pocket guide
Challenge Course facilitators play a vital role in experiential education. They provide opportunities for participants to grow, explore, and take risks in unique environments. Their behavior directly influences participant behavior, thus requiring facilitators to be professional, nonjudgmental, organized, and patient. The three primary roles of facilitators are safety, learning, and record keeping. This manual is a reference for facilitators of the WSU Extension 4-H Challenge Course at Camp Long. It is not a replacement for training. All users of this facility must abide by the policies set forth by 4-H. Facilitators are responsible for choosing activities appropriate to their participants’ goals and ability level. Safety and personal responsibility should always be emphasized. Wrongful use of equipment may result in serious injury, disability, or death.
