Culver City Ropes Course
Our newest premier challenge course is a result of a long partnership with the City of Culver City. In 1992 Fulcrum Learning Systems began delivering programs for the Culver City Police Department Juvenile Diversion programs. We have since expanded our relationship to include programs for city hall administrators, and now Culver City's Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department. We are proud to provide this important service to Culver City and its neighboring communities.


Nestled among trees and the popular and scenic Interpretive Nature Trail, the Culver City challenge ropes course offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding coastal cities. The entrance to the park is at Duquesne Ave. and Jefferson Blvd. in the City of Culver City.

Temescal Canyon Adventure
Set in the heart of the Pacific Palisades, this challenge course is a worthy escape form the busy city yet still within easy driving distance. Participants have the opportunity to explore nature in this historic Native American Chumash site as well as discovering themselves in a fun and challenging environment. Activities include high challenge ropes course elements, low teambuilding events, a nature hike and problem solving activities.

The program may also include a "blind leadership" beach hike where participants lead a blindfolded partner on a hike to beautiful Malibu Beach.
