50

Program Description & Details

Last year, more than 40 different schools and summer camps came to experience this unique aerial activity, and many are repeating the adventure this year.  Rope Runner provides a safe environment for students to push their limits, gain self-confidence, develop problem-solving skills, communication, and team spirit. Many of the perks of Rope Runner also fit into the Core Competencies for school. Please let us know if you would like more on the core competencies we can offer for your class as we have a detailed information sheet we can forward upon request.

 

How does it work? 

  • After a brief introduction and a safety briefing, your group will have full reign of the rope course to explore and challenge themselves across 50 fun elements such as suspended bridges, cargo nets, climbing walls, zip rides and more! 

  • The safety system always keeps everyone safe and secured and our Guides are consistently roaming in the park to provide tips and tricks and help out as needed.

  • Climbers are creating their own adventures, at their own pace within their capacity and can stop playing at any time. The park is suited for all skill levels.

  • Be at least 7 years old and be 124cm (49 inches) tall *

Program Description & Details

Chinatown is a National Historic Site and one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Vancouver.

I'm the only guide who can take people into the heritage buildings, the only one who has a Master's degree in Chinese Canadian History, and I donate money to the Chinese associations for upkeep and renovations. I also make the elders my famous dumplings to show my appreciation and respect.
 
I don't have set times for tours. I customize my tours to what people want.

I take people to numerous clan and county association buildings, to a herbal store, to dried goods and fresh produce stores, etc. You will feel embraced by the community.

Here are some news articles on my business ...
