The challenge course has high and low man-made challenges which are designed to develop and enhance communication, team building, prob- lem lving, trust and self-esteem. Benedictine Sister Brenda Engle- man, a teacher at WCMS, scheduled the trip. "The kids are learning to trust one another," she said of the expe- rience. "They're building confi- dence in themselves and one anoth- er. And they're enjoying it." During the day, the WCMS stu- dents encountered the Te Traverse, a set of six tires dangling between two trees 30 feet apart. They were told to swing from tire to tire -- Tarzan- style -- or any style that worked. Another challenge course was the Nitro Crossing. Tweh'e students stood behind a line, reached for and grabbed a rope and swung  one at a time  to a small platform on the ground. During each of the challenges, the students had to talk among themselves, develop plans, com- municate, and help one another physically and emotionally. Parents Kent Allison and Nell Gillum accompanied the students on the trip, along with WC teacher Eric Lyons.
