High Endeavors Challenge Course

The High Endeavors Challenge Course (HECC) is a comprehensive challenge course facility that is used to benefit a variety of user groups. The course has been located on the San Juan College campus since 1993 and continues to improve and to serve the community. The course includes space for numerous lawn elements, 13 low elements, an Alpine Tower, a Pamper Pole/Net Leap, and a Breathtaker Swing. A large shade structure that overlooks the course provides an area for participants to gather, eat, and/or relax after a successful day on the course. Through custom designed programs the challenge course can be an effective educational tool for personal growth and development, team building, and the development of personal and professional leadership skills.



Renting the High Endeavors Challenge Course

The High Endeavors Challenge Course is available year round, seven days a week, for half, full and multiple day workshops and courses. Rates are based on program design. Please call for a free consultation, price estimate, and course availability.
