Courses are designed to bring your group closer together by experiencing through adventure. Whether you are a business, school, scouts, religious group or birthday we have programs that can be tailor made for you. Things that the courses bring out are leadership, confidence, unity, teamwork, problem solving skills, and friendships. We offer low courses, high courses, water courses, or a combination. Our facilitators are trained to bring out the best in each group and can work with your leaders to design a course that best fits your group.
