It focuses on individual and small group achievements by providing the opportunity to push oneself both physically and mentally through controlled risk-taking situations.

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.
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.
