We offer a variety of team and leadership development programs to university groups, community organizations and corporate groups.

Low Course Programs

We guide groups through a sequence of events that include icebreaker activities, problem-solving initiatives, and low course elements. You can expect to get to know group members quickly, establish a sense of camaraderie and teamwork, and develop an atmosphere of cooperation and trust.

High Course Programs

Go beyond your perceived limits while working as an individual or as a team. We challenge you and your team to expand their comfort zone, build self-confidence, and overcome self-imposed barriers, while being motivated and encouraged by others.

Mobile Teambuilding Programs

Bring the challenge course to you. We will facilitate group development activities at your choice of location. Additional travel costs may be assessed.

Combo Course Programs

A combo course program begins with low course teambuilding followed by a high course adventure. This course is perfect for any group seeking the best of both experiences.


The challenge course is located 6-miles from Central Campus in Schenck Forest, a 245-acre plot managed by the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources for research and teaching.
