PRCA is hosting it’s Annual Meeting and Expo at Country Lake Christian Retreat Center in Underwood, IN.  We especially welcome newcomers, students, camps, operators, businesses, builders, as well as our loyal members and past conference attendees!

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?
