(2-Hour Program)

This group initiatives program is a whirlwind of fun and challenging games and group problem-solving exercises. This program is great to use as an introduction for groups that are just forming or for something a little different to use with established groups.  The emphasis is on fun and building connections within a group.  This program is mobile; we can bring it to your site! Additional fees will be added for travel costs.

Half-Day Challenge Course
(4-Hour Program)

The day will start with some warm-up activities designed to be fun and to get the group prepared for the day.  This will be followed by some group initiatives which focus on providing a mental and physical challenge for the group to solve.  After that, you will move on to the challenge course low elements which will continue to stretch the group’s problem-solving abilities.

If your group’s goals are fun, getting to know one another better, and/or doing something different together, choose half day challenge course program, which provides a great alternative to traditional staff training or orientation.

Full-Day Challenge Course
(8 Hour Program)

The full-day challenge course program includes all the elements half-day  program with the addition of the high elements.  After completing the half-day program, your group will move to the high elements which allow individuals within the group to explore their personal limits in a supportive outdoor setting.

If your group wants an opportunity for self assessment, reflection, and an introduction to team-building, a full-day challenge course program goes beyond fun and begins to point out successful dynamics along with broader issues and roadblocks that often challenge a group’s success.
