Adult Programs - The Adventure Learning Center
An adventure-based education is the perfect fit for corporate clients. The workplace is a competitive environment and the most important skills are those which people can't learn from a book. Company's often need problem-solvers, networkers, leaders and big-picture thinkers more than they need a plaque on the wall. The marketplace requires flexibility, adaptation to change, and performance under pressure. Our programs offer people not only an opportunity to have fun working together, but how to be a great teammate.
Corporate Low Challenge Course
The low course invites teams to work together to solve problems, communicate and to develop trust with one another to accomplish a task. The challenges are a mixture of mental and physical tasks that lead to success! Groups learn to develop team strategies capitalizing on their work styles, strengths and overall goals.
Corporate High Challenge Course
This adventure challenges you to take a risk and step outside of your comfort zone 40 feet above ground. Set among telephone poles, participants navigate up and across climbing walls, nets, cables, logs, and swinging platforms while being safely belayed by our professionally trained staff. . Climbers can take a step off of our Zip Platform and glide through 200 feet of tree tops. Participants must complete the low challenge course prior to advancing to the high course.
Let us bring the Adventure to you! Our portable challenge program can be implemented on site at your workplace, conference room, gymnasium, parks, or any open space. It includes many of the games and initiative we do on the low course.

Our experience with the Challenge Course was everything I had hoped for and more! From the very beginning when we identified areas to work on for our management team to the actual experience on the course; it has all been very beneficial and we still talk about it to this day. It is not uncommon to be in a meeting and have someone reference an initiative from our day on the course and relate it to what is happening right now. The initiatives really made an impact whether it was for professional benefit or personal. An experience well worth our time!
