About the After-School Challengers Program
The WBR Challengers program – now for ages 6 -14 – utilizes WBR ground elements, the Explorers Gateway, the Challenge Course, and the Ninja-Fit Course. WBR After School Adventure programs provide campers with opportunities to cultivate cooperation, leadership, and personal responsibility. We will provide students unique physical and mental challenges, while exploring the heights of outdoor recreation.
WBR Challengers go through a progression of initiatives ranging from simple to complex, as they face each new obstacle. Participants have opportunities to feel challenged, set personal goals, and learn to work for success. WBR Challengers are supervised by our well-trained staff who participate through demonstration, instruction, and support.
WILD BLUE ROPES 2021 AFTER SCHOOL ADVENTURE PROGRAMS WILL OPERATE IN ACCORDANCE WITH CDC GUIDELINES, AND REMAIN CONSISTENT WITH SOUTH CAROLINA LAW AND CHARLESTON LOCAL ORDERS.
What Awaits Your Child at the After School Challengers program?
- Adventure: This fun-filled and active After School Adventure program teaches climbing basics, parkour elements, and physical fitness.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS & SUMMER CAMPS FOR CHARLESTON YOUTH
We all need time for outdoor activities. As history has progressed more and more people are living in urban locations, decreasing their bond with the outdoors and nature. The problem is that we need the time outdoors to truly thrive as human beings. This is even more true for children. But how do you get kids outdoors in a world of endless electronic entertainment, social media, and countless distractions.
The After School Programs at Wild Blue Ropes are designed to help with just that. These programs are filled with active time outdoors, providing incredible physical and mental health benefits to children, as well as being a lot of fun. Our incredibly passionate team will help guide your kids through experiential learning and team building activities that will not only teach them to push themselves and expand their limits, but also redefine their capability as people. From beginner ropes courses to group activities, we have something for every skill level and ability.
Get in touch with our local summer camp in the Charleston, and James Island, SC area to learn more or to register your child for one of our after school programs!
Our mission is simple, to make a positive impact on each child while having fun.

Our COVID-19 Commitment
The Coronavirus pandemic has seriously constrained American before- and after-school programs and child care settings that usually provide after-school and child care support to working parents. There are so many challenges currently facing parents as they try to ensure that school-age children are safe, supervised, and able to engage in quality activities while their parents work.
The goal of Wild Blue Ropes Adventure Park’s Fall 2020 afternoon programs is to help parents manage the balance of working while still protecting their family’s health, and their child(ren)’s need for purposeful recreation. Wild Blue Ropes will keep your child safe, engaged, and active at our outdoor adventure park.
Looking for a program we don’t currently offer? Simply contact us and let us know what you have in mind.
We’d love to work with you to customize an outdoor experience program that meets your needs!
