Challenge Course

Adventure based training is a catalyst for personal and professional growth. Designed to take individuals beyond their own expectations or preconceived notions about their talents and abilities, adventure based training is an excellent means for developing leadership and team-building skills. Experience has shown that people who go beyond their self-imposed boundaries have greater self-awareness, self-esteem, determination and team spirit. Workshops are delivered by Project Adventure™ trained staff.

The Group Initiatives Challenge Course offers an experiential approach to leadership skills, group interaction and teamwork. Your group may be asked to swing across an imaginary canyon, pass through openings of an electric fence, or blindly navigate a three-dimensional minefield.

The group’s response to each challenge often reveals insights into their ability to work together, to communicate and to creatively solve problems. By discussing these activities, the group can draw analogies and develop strategies for real life situations.

Clients participating in our Group Initiatives Challenge Course should dress for the weather. We recommend that participants wear casual clothes that they are comfortable moving around in. We strongly advise against sandals or open toed shoes. Barring lightning or heavy rainfall, we will stay outside during rain. The tree cover on our challenge course provides adequate cover for most rainfall.

We will provide plenty of cold drinking water for the participants, however if you wish to bring other drinks for the group, you may do so. You may also wish to have each participant bring a refillable water bottle to help reduce the amount of trash we create and the impact we have on the environment.

Parking and restrooms are available directly adjacent to the course. Our covered Pavilion makes an excellent location for a catered lunch or dinner.
