Stretch!

What is Stretch!?
Stretch!

The Leadership Fellows and Campus Leadership & Involvement Center are proud to offer Stretch!, a day of leadership and physical challenges via ropes and challenge course initiatives.

Stretch! is a fun and challenging day! We will begin on-campus where we will introduce the leadership concepts that we plan to focus on and watch a powerful TEDx video to set the stage. At Summit Vision, we will learn all of the necessary safety procedures for being part of a high ropes course. Then, it's up in the sky for us as we move our way through a series of exercises and challenges.

  • Participants will travel to Summit Vision in Westerville, Ohio and have the opportunity to challenge themselves with low and high ropes courses.
  • Participants will travel to and from Summit Vision and receive lunch.

How do I apply to participate in Stretch!?

Applications are due March 30, 2015 by 5 pm. Applications are available here: https://orgsync.com/20791/forms/106739.


Feel free to contact the Leadership Fellows (leadershipfellows@denison.edu) with questions.
