Adventure Programs

Team Challenge Course

Can you fall backwards from a five-foot platform, or scale a 10-foot wall to save the world? With the help of your teammates, you can! These plus many more exciting adventures will help make your group a team. Individuals learn to communicate in order to solve each component. Everyone is involved in a hands-on learning situation that allows team members to push beyond their perceived limits. If you want to improve communication and build trust, then the Team Challenge Course is for you.

High Ropes Courses

Imagine being suspended 25 feet in the air, hanging by a harness. Our three High Ropes Courses (ranging from 15' to 50') are designed to take individuals and groups beyond their expectations while giving them the opportunity to overcome fear and improve self-image. Picture your team crossing rope bridges, walking wires, balancing on a log and zipping off a platform to get down. Find yourself eagerly anticipating the next climb as you watch others on your team attempt physically and mentally demanding components. It takes a partner to get through the first component on this course, and then you're on your own (except for the support of your teammates on the ground). This activity offers the maximum experience in team-bonding and confidence building.

The Climbing Tower

On this artificial rock climbing wall, each participant monitors personal progress by striving to conquer different levels that bring them to the top. Once there, participants rappel themselves back down. This activity fosters goal setting and determination, and facilitates team bonding through encouragement and support. Test your strength and coordination on this high-climbing adventure – a true rush of excitement! Also offered as a night program.
