Activities

We are constantly updating, researching and honing our activities to ensure a positive experience. Each rotation is between 60 - 90 minutes, and is designed as an experiential learning activity followed by a debrief. Below you will find some of our tried-and-true favorites. If you don’t find what you are looking for, we would be more than happy to adapt, add, or change an activity to meet your needs.

 

Please call us to discuss tailoring activities – we are ready to work with you!

High Ropes

Our high ropes courses provide fantastic opportunities for growth and achievement. Most of our elements are oriented for groups to work together as a team. Participants can traverse the obstacles suspended in the air with more than one teammate at a time, or help to belay their teammates and communicate with them from below. These courses challenge participants to develop trust within themselves and their teammates. Creating lasting impressions, many groups benefit from this unique program and look forward to it every year.

Our low ropes course consists of a series of ground based obstacles designed to challenge teams and individuals to work together. The elements are built to reduce inhibitions and barriers. Participants are given a real or imaginary scenario to solve group-based obstacles together using only the resources at hand. Exercises focus on building trust, improving participants’ ability to communicate, stimulating creative problem solving, collaborating even with constraints, and developing and executing a plan with many moving parts.
