Challenge Course

The UCF Challenge Course program is committed to enhance team-building, self-confidence, and leadership development through adventure-based learning experiences.

We design your program based on group needs and goals. Activities can be tailored to strengthen:

  • Group cohesiveness
  • Communication
  • Trust
  • Group processing
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Individual members’ self-awareness and confidence level

Our trained facilitators can lead your group through a variety of video conference activities to help your team, club, or class connect and build community in this time of distance learning.At this time, we are offering this service free of charge for all UCF RSOs, UCF academic program/classes, and UCF faculty and staff groups.

For Summer 2021, we are offering a limited number of small-group in-person Challenge Course programs. Group size must be no more that 24 people (up to 3 groups of 8), and we cannot allow more than 8 people per group. All participants and facilitators will follow campus COVID-19 precautions. Per UCF guidelines the RWC encourages rather than requires our campus community to wear face coverings indoors and to follow CDC guidelines on our campuses and everywhere you go (link to PDF version). CDC guidelines still highly recommend wearing facial coverings indoors while working out.

No climbing involved—2 to 7 hour-long programs.
Focuses on the group as a whole by presenting problem–solving scenarios that require and develop teamwork, trust, leadership, and communication skills. The group finds success through working together and depending upon the member’s strengths.

These recreational events are free for UCF students and are scheduled twice each semester.

Walk-ins are accepted.


Our facilitators plan and develop activities to create opportunities for team and individual learning in an emotional and safe challenging environment. Through meaningful debriefing and discussion times we try to transfer back these learning experiences to the personal, professional, and academic lives of participants.

Our Challenge Course programs are based on Experiential Education principles. Experiential Education is a learning process that places participants in a unique setting with purposeful problem–solving activities that require full engagement. Through synthesis and reflection, participants examine preexisting behaviors in a new light and explore new found skills and strengths.
