Wild Blue Ropes: Proud to be a B Corp
The Charleston community is hands down a testament to all that is love, strength and resilience. It is a community that has proven time and time again that grace and charm is more than just a shiny jewel that attracts people from all over the country, but the unique gem that keeps this community alive and thriving.
And inspired by the examples set by our friends and neighbors, our philosophy is that our business too should benefit a community just as much as it benefits from one. As a part of being a B Corporation, we at Wild Blue Ropes have proudly joined a growing community from 33 countries and over 60 industries working together towards one unifying goal – to redefine success is business.
Climb for a Causewas our summer 2015 initiative to give back to the local non-profits that our company and employees hold near and dear to our hearts, donating a percent of every challenge pass purchased to specific Lowcountry organizations.
In support of the recovery of Caitlyn the dog, we kicked off our first climb benefitting the Charleston Animal Society. Other Climb for a Cause beneficiaries included Mother Emanuel AME, Lowcountry Local First, Sea Islands Chamber of Commerce, Reading Partners of Charleston, Ronald McDonald House Charleston, One80 Place, Lowcountry Food Bank, Center for Woman and Yes Carolina.
I personally enjoy working at a company who values the importance of serving others, helps employees to find fulfillment in their jobs, and a greater purpose in their lives. As a proud local Charleston Business and B Corp member – we encourage all companies to compete not to just be the best in the world, but to do the best for the world.

Discover “Wow” Moments and Build Confidence at Wild Blue Ropes
The new school year is right around the corner and Wild Blue Ropes is geared up to jump start your students’ academic success by increasing their self confidence and self-esteem!
Positive self-esteem gives us the strength and flexibility to take charge of our lives and grow from our mistakes without the fear of rejection.
Where and how does success usually start at Wild Blue Ropes? It begins with introducing yourself to physical and mental challenges that help break through self-imposed boundaries. We like to call this, “experiential learning.” Experiential learning is a process through which students develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences outside a traditional academic setting.
In many cases, achieving success and building self-confidence can start with failure. The expression “failure is not an option” is a misnomer. Failure is indeed an option and an opportunity for great learning. How you respond and what you learn from failure is the best option one can have. Teaching a child that failure is not the end of the world, but a stepping stone for success is one of life’s great lessons!
Besides building confidence and self-esteem, a challenge course offers other important benefits such as increasing problem solving, critical thinking and decision making skills. These strengths can benefit your child in both school and life.
Watching your child conquer a challenge and have an “I can do it” moment is such a gift. Here at Wild Blue Ropes, we get to witness “WOW” events every day, and it’s very special to see the AHA moment in a child’s eyes and through their smiles.

Hugh Corcoran, a.k.a. “The Challenge Crafter”
Constantly running, hiking, & biking around the Allegheny Mountains, Hugh became an avid student of the outdoors. If there was sweet adventure nearby, Hugh was always hot on the trail, a trail that eventually landed him at Tulane University. It was when his wild streak began to overpower him that he said goodbye to the 9-5 and moved to Charleston, which presented an opportunity to get back to the things he loves most: his family and the outdoors.
