Team Building Options

Alpine Tower

The Climbing Tower experience provides participants with the opportunity to become part of a group working together to master individual challenges. While the Tower challenges participants individually it is also designed to encourage group interaction, cooperation and to enhance one’s confidence and self-esteem. Participants scale a 50 foot vertical course encountering different challenges along the way. Safety lines secure all climbers at all times. Wrap up your experience with a ride on our Giant Swing. A trained facilitator will design an experience, which will meet the goals of your particular group. The tower provides unique challenges and team-oriented experiences for groups of 8 to 36.

Challenge Course

This Course is designed to present a group of 8-15 individuals with challenges and obstacles that encourage group participation. Individual events are presented in a sequence designed to help achieve the group's overall goals. Though course requires physical effort, they are far less physically demanding than the Alpine Tower. Lessons learned can include the value of team effort, sensitivity to other’s weaknesses, an appreciation of other’s strengths and the development of good listening skills. Communication is stressed as the group moves through increasingly difficult tasks. If you desire your group to experience an activity that will encourage team effort, cooperation, and communication, the Challenge Course may be for you. Recommended for all age groups. Challenge course groups should be a minimum of 8 persons in size. Groups more than 15 are often divided into two groups or more for the purpose of facilitation.
