Abilene - Kansas Boy Scouts "Ninja" Rope Course

The boy scout camp in Abilene, KS was the beneficiary of a donation from a local foundation affiliated with a hospital in the area. The purpose of these funds: create some kind of fitness circuit for 7 to 12-year-olds.


Adult fitness circuits tend to be a little boring. Kids want to play and in playing they want to be active. As the project was researched, Berliner rope play equipment came to their attention. The Boy Scout Council felt that this type of play equipment matched and balanced the Boy Scout concept of “Fun with a Purpose.”

Budget $125K-$150K
Age Range 7yrs - 12yrs
Location Abilene, Kansas
Terranos There are dozens of different rope options available that can be combined to create thousands of different options.
Berliner Rope Course for the Boys

The Council chose to install Berliner’s Terranos play equipment with high and low ropes, two versions of “monkey bar” type of equipment and a bridge.


This play equipment offers a great blend of independent and organized play, such as:


  • Relays, timed events, and challenges.
  • As the boys have down time, they gravitate to the equipment to play, explore and challenge each other.
  • Close to the ground, the Terranos 2-dimensional ropes physically challenge a child’s balance and agility.
  • The shakiness of the rope bridge tests the boys’ balancing and hand-over-hand skills while adding to the fun!


This equipment has been hugely popular with the boys, challenging them not only physically, but also stimulating their imagination.

Physical Challenges These courses will push children to increase strength and stamina.
Variety Each rope challenge will give children a chance to succeed and build confidence.
