The Challenge Course: In 2001, a group of people concerned with the future of Kaua‘i and its people sought to establish a grass roots project that would serve as a tool to equip individuals with the wherewithal to lead healthy lives for themselves and others. Through the help of a small grant, the Waipā challenge ropes course was built to serve the community. Under the business name Kauaʻi Team Challenge, Inc. and in partnership with the Waipā Foundation, groups of people began to utilize the Waipā challenge ropes course to increase effective social skills, invest in self-growth and build productive teams. Today, the corporation continues to provide team building services and outdoor education based on the experiential learning cycle. Personalized trainings are tailored to each group’s needs and goals. The company provides services for youth and adult groups, corporate and small businesses, eco-tourists, and our local community. The Kauaʻi Team Waipa Challenge Course at Waipā is made up of low ropes and high ropes activities focused on team building, communication, critical thinking and increasing self esteem. Our hope is that our clients not only learn about their own strengths and opportunities to make a difference in their lives but also learn about the Hawaiian culture through a fun and challenging experience.
