Program Options

Short Program (2 hours)

We'll work on the basics of team building with a fun program with activities to practice:

  • Problem Solving
  • Creative Thinking
  • Communication Skills

We can hold this program indoors at one of the gyms or outdoors in a field.

Half Day (3 – 4 hours)

We'll go through a progression of team-building activities that will culminate with one of our height activities, either climbing our Alpine Tower II or experiencing the Swing by Choice.

Full Day (5 – 6 hours)

We'll spend the first half of the day completing a series of team-building challenges that encourage positive group development. The second half of the day we'll move on to more challenging elements and includes one or both of our height activities: the Alpine Tower II and the Swing by Choice.
