Back in the SUNSHINE STATE by popular demand! We especially welcome newcomers, students, camps, operators, businesses, builders,  as well as our loyal members and past conference attendees!

Covid-19 has really been tough on business and camps these past two years. The zipline, challenge course, and aerial adventure industry has seen some really hard hit areas while other have prospered. Businesses all over the world have been doing their best to provide services to their markets, all while our personal lives have been turned up side down. Our thoughts and support go out to all that are dealing with the adverse affects of this world wide pandemic.

 
The PRCA would like to support our industry in the best ways possible! To this end, to address the needs of those who still desire in-person learning and interaction, along with those who may not be able to travel or simply choose not to do so, the PRCA is here to support you!
 
This years conference will be in person in the sunny state of Florida! Our goal is to provide the same quality workshops of years past, yet be sensitive to the needs of all attendees.

ABOUT PRCA AND ITS ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Since 2004, PRCA has annually convened a conference to promote networking opportunities, general industry knowledge, professional development workshops, state of industry reports, member engagement, and to conduct official Board and Membership Annual meetings.

Who should attend? Challenge course owners, builders, operators, guides, instructors, facilitators, attorneys, insurance representatives, and other interested parties in the ropes challenge course, aerial adventure course, zip line tour industry are encouraged to attend.

A PRCA conference tends to be a more intimate and informal gathering. It  provides a balance of professional engagement while promoting inclusion and the opportunity to have deeper conversations with industry leaders and experts as well as with fellow facilitators and operators.

Conference attendees can gain important skills and core knowledge with access to shared resources which may not be found elsewhere.  And, participation is an affordable option to help you and your staff keep current and aware of important industry changes. Why not attend and gain all the benefits that are available for you through first-hand experience?
