To sign up for a Low Ropes Course Program you must contact us email ropes@sonoma.edu or call (707) 664 3428 and provide your contact information, number of people in your group (minimum 6), a little bit of information about your group (SSU affiliated? off campus?), and two or three potential dates and times.  Please contact us at least two weeks prior to your proposed program.  Groups can can range in time from 2.5 to 8 hours depending on what your group is looking for. Once we confirm staff for your group then we will send you a confirmation email and a 'lead' facilitator will contact you for details of your group. Your group will only be confirmed when and if we have staff for the time you provided. 

A great attitude! Also, closed toe shoes, plenty of water, liability waivers for every member participating, and appropriate dress for the weather; we will be outside!  It may also help to eat before you come or bring a snack, ropes course activities are energy intensive and it helps to have a full tank!

We conduct our programs rain or shine! Don’t be scared…if you are dressed for it, playing in the rain is great fun. If you suspect it will rain on the day of your program, please wear a waterproof jacket (with the appropriate layers underneath if its cold), waterproof pants if you have them, and those sturdy closed toed shoes you were already planning on wearing! In the event that it is too rainy even for us, we can promptly reschedule your group.

If you are an off campus group, please visit our rates page. There you will find our rates subject to duration and participant number.

If you are an on campus student group, thanks to a grant graciously given from Instructionally Related Activity Fees, the first 30 Fall and 20 Spring SSU affiliated groups can experience the course at no cost each semester. Once these slots are used up, on campus rates apply.

Any SSU class, club, sports team, and/or greek organization is considered an SSU affiliated group. If you are an SSU student you can easily get 5 other people (that are SSU students) and sign up for a group. All you need is 6 people affiliated with SSU.
