Our 100 acre forest is filled with team building activities and adventures—including:
No, there is no weight requirement for participation in our team building activities. For zip-lining and the high ropes course we do require participants to be between 70 and 250 pounds.
The Acknowledgement of Risk form must be signed individually by all participants. Parents/Guardians must sign on behalf of minors. A link to the online waiver will be sent as part of your reservation confirmation. A pdf of the waiver form can be provided if it will be easier for you to utilize printed waivers.
We can plan programs for most any age. However, team building focused on enhancing collaboration, problem-solving, leadership skills, etc., typically works best starting with middle school age participants.
We’ll build a program that will work for your team. For example, we can have everyone in the group participate in team building initiatives for the first half of the program and then split the group so those who want to zip-line can do so while those who prefer not to zip-line participate in our scavenger hunt that utilizes our hiking trails.
The foundation of our team building experiences are group initiatives. These activities consist of facilitated challenges that help participants explore their role within the group, how they interact with other group members, and build leadership, problem-solving, goal settings, etc. skills (specific areas of focus are determine by the participant group leader during our pre-program planning process). Initiatives are active, hands-on, and tailored to meet the interests/needs of each group. So the same activity might be used with a high school soccer team and a workplace team of professional colleagues but the exact guidelines for how to accomplish the task, the discussions during the activity and the debriefing discussion will be very different.
Our staff work with you prior to your team building program to discuss your goals for the experience, to review aspects of the group such as participant ages, any physical accommodations that should be planned for and how we can best assist the group to transfer their team building experience into their day-to-day interactions with one another.
We want to help you accomplish the outcome you set out to acheive. Whether that’s building leadership, effective communication, collaborative, or just trying to have fun as a team, we’ve got you covered. Our hands-on approach to group development offers a unique opportunity for group members to interact, bond, explore roles within the group, have fun and learn from their successes and failures.
Our approach to team building programs is based on the practices of experiential education. Perhaps best explained through the Experiential Learning Cycle, this process involves:
This process is especially valuable for those seeking a way to encourage members of their group to be thoughtful in how they approach challenges, problem solve, and build success.
