Challenge Course

Student on High Ropes Course

We offer a variety of team and leadership development programs to university groups, community organizations and corporate groups. When reserving a program, we work with you to customize the program to meet the goals of your group and find a time that best fits your schedule. Our programs are scheduled on an hourly basis and can be booked at a time that is convenient for your group.

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. Your program may assess additional travel costs.

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.

Virtual Teambuilding

In our virtual programs, groups engage in several interactive, Zoom-based activities. Virtual teambuilding achieves the same objectives as the physical challenge course by using activities that require movement, conversation and experiential learning. We schedule virtual programs on an hourly basis and can be booked at a time that is convenient for your group. These programs are ideal for groups that are unable to be in the same physical location.
