Spencer Butte Challenge Course
The Spencer Butte Challenge Course is a unique community resource accessible near Spencer Butte Park.


The Challenge Course exists to provide learning opportunities by participating in challenging activities and events. All programs are customized to your group and sequenced to create fun and engaging learning opportunities, observe group dynamics, help set achievable goals for the future and to focus on solutions. We are able to design programs for youth, families, adults, non-profits, and corporate groups.

Some of our clients this past year have been:
  • 4J Teachers and Principals
  • U of O School of Business
  • Looking Glass students and staff
  • City of Eugene Public Works
  • Ridgeline Management Company
  • Mobility International USA
  • Willamette Family Treatment Servies
  • Juvented FACETA
  • City of Eugene Planning and Development

Trained Spencer Butte Challenge Course facilitators work with your group to design programs. Through participation people experience success, challenge, fear, solutions, risk, and collaboration. These experiences are the basis of discussing what is being learned and how it transfers to other areas of life.

Elements of our program may include:

Games* – activities that are fun at heart, collaborative, get-to-know-you, and that encourage collective laughter.

Initiatives* – solution driven activities that promote discussion, collaboration, and planning. The goals are determined by the group.

Low Elements – fixed elements utilizing trees, boards, cables, or logs. Low elements are spotted activities that require group participation. The group either goes through the activity together or supports individuals through the event.

High Elements – fixed elements that are 25–55 feet off the ground. Individuals or pairs participate in the challenges at height while the group assists in belaying and supporting the participants.

*Can be done off-site of the challenge course at a City of Eugene Community Center, park, office, gym, or a location of your choice, in or out of doors.
Workshops or sessions can be designed as half-day, full-day, or multi-day events spread out through the year.

Pricing varies and is based on types of activities, duration of event, and number of participants. Call us for a quote!
