Challenge course

A laboratory for groups

We call our ropes course a Challenge Course. It is a place where individuals and groups are invited to reach past perceived limits and discover potential.

Each experience is designed to provoke discussion, reflection, and provide insights into your group's strengths, processes and culture. You will depart from the course with a common experience to build from, a better understanding of preferences and strengths of your team, and renewed energy to bring back to your organization.

Each half day, full day, or multiple day course is individually tailored to meet the unique needs of your organization.
