This workshop is Session Two of our four-day Institute for camp staff. These two days of the Institute are designed for new Adventure Program Directors, Facilitators and Belay Assistants.  Utilizing core Adventure concepts, participants will: Learn Standard Operating Procedures for traversing and ascending high elements, including Climbing Wall/Tower faces; Learn how to tie the figure 8 follow-through, figure 8 on-a-bight, double figure 8 and Killick hitch.; Learn the BUS belay method; Learn when participant belays (Australian Belay, TEAM belay, individual) might be appropriate, and how to manage these belays.* Learn how to set up and take down elements properly; Care for Challenge Course equipment; Learn how to incorporate various types of groups into a High Element experience. Prerequisites: If participants are not already familiar with core adventure concepts such as Challenge by Choice, Full Value Contract and the Experiential Learning Cycle as well as low element facilitation, they should consider taking Session One of the Institute: Facilitation Skills for Ground Activities and Low Elements prior to taking Session Two. (*topic will be covered as time allows).
