Summit Ropes has pioneered a new approach to team building that is perfect for today's organization. We have created six unique activities and perfected their delivery to limit the cost and time required for preparation. Each activity is then customized by the facilitator for each organizations needs. We offer three activities on the ropes course and three activities on the ground. Finally, by being indoors and conveniently located next to Dulles Airport your program is guaranteed to not be affected by weather.
