A New Element at the Spencer Butte Challenge Course

4 09 2012

We are introducing a new high element at the Spencer Butte Challenge Course, the McKenzie Crossing!  This element has been in the works for a while and, with continued input from staff, was installed this year.  Here are some photos during a staff event where we featured the element and tested it out.

The inaugural program that used the element for the first time was a  recent River House 4R’s Camp.  One participant described the feeling of doing the element as “Exciting!  Standing on the first platform before you go made me very nervous, and then I just did it and once I was out there I just kept going.”

We are happy to have this element up and running.  Consider coming out to the Challenge Course Adventure Day September 15th.  You can look up more information here (www.eugene-or.gov/recguide) or contact Robert Brack at the River House.  (541.682-6324)
