Ropes Courses Overview
Successful team building events should carry over into the office. Ropes courses are inherently fun, and safety should always be the first priority. But, without the guidance of a professional facilitator that knows how to identify the specific needs of your team, your investment in training may be wasted. Adventure Associates' clients choose our customized Team Building Adventures because they appreciate the difference between recreational events and truly facilitated team building programs.
What is an Adventure Associates' Ropes Course Challenge?
The combination of Low and High Ropes Courses enable participants to grow at both the team and individual levels, exploring risk, leadership, communication, problem-solving, and coaching. The Low Ropes Course focuses on collaboration. The challenges call upon every member of the team to participate, and they present unending opportunities for self-discovery and team growth.
The High Ropes Course emphasizes risk-taking, trust, and coaching. The challenges allow participants to expand their comfort zonessometimes dramaticallyand recognize fears that may block personal achievement.
