Special Projects Division: Ropes Course Construction, Training, and Inspection


Our Special Projects division was formed in response to the rapid growth of adventure education at school and camp facilities.  We are involved in all aspects of challenge course design and construction, and in experiential education curriculum development and training.  Whether it be a grand high and low ropes course facility, an indoor climbing wall, or a few low elements, we work with teachers and administrators from idea to completion.  Our clients benefit from our experience as we help them navigate relevant issues such as insurance, maintenance, and training.

We work with our clients to provide the following services:

  • Challenge Course Inspections
  • Challenge Course Construction
  • Staff Training on Safety and Ropes Course Facilitation

AWESOME!!! That is the only word I can say to describe the five day training I just completed with Carl Schmidt [Special Projects Director].
I am a member of the Valley Youth House staff in Bethlehem / Allentown, Pennsylvania.  Carl was spectacular. He demonstrates his vast knowledge and skills throughout the training and has the talent of educating.  Through the training, I learned more then I think I have learned in a very long time. I learned about myself and about how I can be a positive helper in the adolescent community I work with.  Thank you for sending such a knowledgeable worker to Pennsylvania to assist in our professional development.

My name is Brian Junger, a teacher at Far Hills Country Day School.  One of my responsibilities here was to operate and maintain our high and low challenge course.  Over the past 2 years I was set to task as the project manager to do a complete renovation out on our course. After many companies came in and out of here with their proposals, only one stood out the most. Obviously it was Carl and your company Project U.S.E.
Carl took an amazing amount of time with me to prep and plan to be sure we were getting the best course possible for my budget. Carl did not leave out a single detail throughout this process and kept his word from day one as to what he was going to do for my course.
Carl was always diligent in communicating to me whenever I called to keep me posted on what was happening next and what we needed to do moving forward to get the project done. As far as Carl is concerned and my fellow department members would agree, he was outstanding in every facet of this process. Please feel free to share these sentiments with Carl. I have thanked him profusely already but felt compelled to share my thoughts with you as well.
