Community Groups


Are you a visitor that wants to see what BYU-Idaho has to offer, family reunion, youth activities group, ward, or business organization?

To schedule the Ropes Course, you have two options.  You can follow our reservation link and pick a time to visit during drop-in times on Monday and Friday 4 pm - 10 pm, and Saturday from 8 am - 10 pm.  If you have an i-number admission is $4 or $8 without an i-number.  If those times don't work for you, or if you have a large group, you can call the scheduling office. The minimum session length is two hours.  Reservations made through the scheduling office must be made at least 7 business days prior to arrival date and cannot be scheduled more than 90 days in advance. Ropes course hours are Monday through Saturday 8:00 AM - 10:00 PM.  Please keep in mind that if you drop in, we will not be able to perform any teambuilding activities, lower initiatives, power pole, or the giant swing.  Groups that are interested in team building, communication, and problem-solving activities, power pole, or giant swing should make a reservation through the scheduling office.

Cancellations and adjustments must take place a minimum of 3 business days before your date of arrival. Cancellations or adjustments made within three days will incur a $25 cancellation/adjustment fee. Any group who does not show up for their scheduled time will be charged a $50 no show fee. There is no fee for cancellations or rescheduling due to inclement weather.  Weather cancellations or reschedules may only be made on the day of arrival.

Pricing is displayed in the table below. The Ropes Course accepts payment in the form of credit card, cash, check, or university accounts (you may create a university account even if you aren't affiliated with the university).

Charges are incurred immediately if you have a BYU-I account or general ledger number. All other groups will be sent an invoice for payment, which is due upon receipt. All invoices will include a link to pay by credit card through a secure payment gateway.  Cash or Check payments may be made at the scheduling office Monday through Friday 8:15 am – 5:00 pm. The scheduling office is closed every Tuesday from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm. The scheduling office is located in the Manwaring Center room 376. You may mail payments to:
