Youth Camp Zipline Construction

Extensive design and engineering expertise have enabled Skyline Ziplines to create some of the most exciting zipline courses in the world. Our projects have enhanced the experience at high-profile locations such as the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in California, Grand Canyon Resort in Arizona, and Canyons Zip Line & Canopy Tours in Florida, but it is our work for youth camps we’re most proud of. At camps across the nation, our technologies are providing infrastructure to add new types of programs while supporting youth development and team building.

The Latest in Zipline Technology

Each zipline obstacle course we design integrates the most advanced technologies and safety features on the market. These include the skyTECH safe launch system with an electronic launch mechanism and magnetic gates plus automated photo capture and RFID monitoring. In addition, we integrate DOSH-approved two-point harnesses, braking systems, trolleys, and launchers. Galvanized steel cables maximize safety while our distributors create a realistic freefall sensation and ensure the utmost safety of riders.

Full-Service Zipline Implementation

From site discovery to design, engineering to fabrication, we can take on projects of any size and scale. Our construction and installation process uses innovative materials, minimizes waste, and accounts for safety at all phases of the process. Safety testing is performed to ensure all systems work properly and that your camp can operate without any concerns for the well-being of youth looking for adventure (Skyline even provides routine safety inspections). We even offer training, support, and operational coaching after installation.

What Our Ziplines Include

We can provide zipline youth camps with:

 

  • Towers and Platforms: We design, engineer, and construct unique towers and decks to launch from as well as set up launch points on roof tops, cliffs, ledges, ski jumps, and waterslides.

 

  • Challenge Courses: Add an aerial and climbing adventure for campers with climbing walls, which are popular at youth camps as they provide opportunities for new challenges and programs.

 

  • Suspension Bridges: A suspension bridge as part of your zipline infrastructure provides a unique way to access a location, especially if there’s limited access to the launch point.

Cost of Zipline Construction For Youth Camps

Each zipline obstacle course installed is unique and every site has specific requirements, so the exact cost of your project is determined by many factors. We’ve installed everything from 40-foot tower systems to giant 10 wide parallel ziplines. Just let us know the size and budget of your zipline project and we will work with you to make it a reality.
