Think ‘human Jenga!’.  One or two people are fitted with harnesses and helmets and stand on top of an ever-growing stack of crates, the rest of the group help to build the stack as high as the can before it topples over.  Excellent team work and trust exercise which can be coupled with other on-site activities such as Archery or the Abseil Tree. The safety ropes ensure that anyone falling from the crate tower is gently lowered to the ground at a safe and steady pace.

The children need to work as a team, climbing up the crate tower as they build it. The rest of the group offer assistance in different ways, including belaying and passing crates up to those building the tower as the tower gets higher.
