Challenge Course

Challenge Course


The Challenge Course offers a variety of programs designed to address the needs of our wide range of participants. Our programs are available to university groups (students, faculty, and staff), community organizations, and corporate groups. All of our programs are individually customized to meet a group’s specific goals and desired outcomes.



Low Course

Low Course Programs

Low Course activities are the foundation for building effective teamwork. Throughout the program facilitators guide groups through a sequence of events that include ice breaker activities, problem solving initiatives, and low course elements. During the program, time is taken to discuss the experiences and relate the learning outcomes back to “real world” situations. Participants 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

The Jim Wall High Challenge Course consists of 15 high course elements built 35 to 40 feet above ground. High course elements push participants to go beyond their perceived limits while working as an individual or as a team. Participants are challenged to expand their comfort zone, build self-confidence, and overcome self-imposed barriers, while being motivated and encouraged by other group members.


Combo Course Programs

A combo course program begins with Low Course teambuilding followed by High Course adventure. This course is perfect for any group seeking the best of both experiences.


Directions

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.
