Stowe Heights Challenge Course

Community Youth Concepts is currently raising money to complete the launch of Polk County’s new Stowe Heights Challenge Course located on the back of Stowe Elementary at 3516 Dubuque Avenue! Thank you to all of our sponsors who have gotten us this far.

A challenge course is a combination of mental and physical challenges requiring groups to work as a team to accomplish goals.  Through a series of fun and unusual activities, participants learn valuable information about themselves, each other, and the group as a unit.  The experience allows for all group members to take on something unknown together working on self-determined objectives and pushing on perceived limits while operating under the foundational principle of “Challenge By Choice”.

Stowe Heights is made of a series of portable, low and high elements are constructed on utility poles and require a belay to ensure safety while low and portable elements are positioned near or on the ground.  While the main high course structure is in place, the low course and final touches to providing a state-of-the-art experience are yet to be finalized.

If you are interested in helping launch this great resource right here in Des Moines, you can view our sponsorship opportunities and/or click here to donate.   For more information, contact Janie Jeffries at janie@cyconcepts.org.  You can also visit the Stowe Heights website at stoweheights.org
