Ramblewild Eco Adventure Park

 
Set on 1,400+ acres in the scenic mountains of Berkshire County, MA, Ramblewild is home to four seasons of outdoor activities that are ideal for experiential learning.
 
Ramblewild’s Aerial Adventure Park is the program’s main focus: visitors traverse from tree to tree on 150 different elements in 8 challenge courses, for an exhilarating experience that builds self-confidence, self-esteem and teamwork. The entire park is built sustainably without one single nail or screw placed in the trees.
 
As part of their experience, visitors enjoy an extensive network of hiking and snowshoeing nature trails that begin at the Ramblewild lodge and wind their way over the mountain; they are accompanied in their journey by experienced staff, and learn about the importance of our forests, modern forest management techniques and the value of conservation.
 
Our nature curriculum takes guests to a 120-acre sugarbush that sources the raw material for a commercial maple syrup business and offers interesting science and technology insights. Finally, at the top of Brodie Mountain, the wind turbines of the Berkshire Wind Project are a visible display of the power of natural resources and provide lessons in energy generation and renewable energy.
 
Ramblewild is designed to immerse visitors in the natural world so they leave refreshed, reconnected with nature, and full of indelible memories.

Ropes Courses Fun Facts

Did you know that the British Royal Marines use an advanced ropes course as training for their troops? The course builds confidence and tests troops’ ability to overcome both physical and emotional obstacles.

The same ideas are used in recreational ropes courses, which aim to build teamwork and cooperation, as well as boost confidence and leadership skills in participants.

It is worthwhile to reflect on the experience after the course. Ask campers to describe their feelings during each part of the activity, what challenges they faced, and what strategies they used to overcome those challenges. Ask how these examples can be applied to real-life situations.
