Kamba Kourse

Kamba Kourse, adventure ropes course attraction located inside the Audubon Nature Institute, is offering free admission to our nation\’s first responders: police officers, fire fighters, EMTs, military, and TSA staff persons June 5-30, 2016. We believe they are hard working individuals and we want them to feel appreciated for the safety they provide our communities. 

In order to participate, active first responders, military and TSA personnel must present a valid job specific photo ID at the ticket counter to collect their wristband. Badges are accepted, but they must be accompanied by a valid photo ID.

Kamba Kourse is located inside the Audubon Nature Institute. The four-story Sky Trail® ropes course attraction also features a Sky Tykes® ropes course for kids under 4ft. tall. Adventure-seekers of all ages can experience the swinging beams, cargo nets and rope ladders of varying levels of difficulty.

Every spring, at the start of the highway construction season motorist and roadway workers are encouraged to pay greater attention to safety through the National Work Zone Awareness Week campaign. Since 1999, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the Federal Highway Administration and the American Traffic Safety Services Association have coordinated and sponsored National Work Zone Awareness Week. According to the latest Federal statistics there were 514 fatal motor vehicle crashes in work zones in 2010, resulting in 576 fatalities. This year’s slogan: \”Don’t Be That Driver!” reinforces the message that motorists should be constantly alert and prepared for unexpected changes in and around work zones.
