Rippleffect Kayak
Sea Kayaking & Outdoor Challenge Course

Rippleffect

When: Saturday, July 20, 2019

Location: Rippleffect in Portland, ME

Description: Rippleffect is the most unique program on our calendar.  Located on Cow Island, a 26-acre island in Casco Bay, you'll have the opportunity to explore so many things.  Once an Army outpost, the island has remnants of the old fort.  Many of the structures are integrated into the challenge course elements.  There's plenty of rocky beach and tide pools teeming with little sea creatures.  Most exciting of all, is the opportunity to sea kayak among the beautiful coastal islands of Maine.  This is truly an adventure unlike anything else.

The Browne Center

When: Saturday, June 15, 2019

Description: This is where it all started for On Belay.  Our first program was held at the Browne Center and we've been back ever since.  Tucked away in the woods of the Browne Center campus, is one of the largest challenge courses in New England.  There are so many elements, you may not do the same one twice!  The whole experience comes together with the support and guidance of a knowledgable staff and UNH students.  And there's a time capsule just for On Belay (maybe you'll get to add something to it)!  You won’t want to miss it!
