Leap of Faith
What is a Leap of Faith?
Our Leap of Faith is based in a tree. Unlike many other Leap of Faith activities ours offers the participant three levels of height. Level 1 is at 10 foot/ 3 metres, level 2 is at 20 foot/ 6.5 metres and if you are feeling really brave climb to the top platform at 35 feet/ 10.6 metres. Suspended next to the tree is a buoy attached to a rope that can be lifted and lowered depending on where you decide to jump from. The aim is to jump and high five the buoy. The challenge is to climb up the tree using the wooden ladders attached and reach the first platform. Decision time. Do you take the leap from here or continue to the next level? Once decided, you face the leap and will need to summon all your courage to overcome the voices in your head that are telling you not to do it. The rest of the team are on the floor below with plenty of encouragement and support for each challenger.
Once you have made the leap you will be lowered back to the ground safely by the instructor. A real BUZZ!
Suitable for age 8 to adult.
