This is our signature event for high school students. Over 90 percent of those who attend say they would recommend it to a friend. Students traveled from Japan, New Hampshire, Alaska, Florida, and several other states.
One of the highlights is an event called the Williamsburger, which is a tradition at Elevation courses. It’s a triathlon-style adventure race. Each pod of 12 students picks one male and one female representative to compete in four timed events: a 1-mile run, a rated rock climb, a swim, and a 50-foot rope ascension. Parents often come to watch the Williamsburg and closing ceremonies that follow immediately after it.
We also hold “olympics” for all participants. These are mostly hilarious obstacle-course type challenges that students compete in as teams.
