Challenge Course

029_FCCNot to be confused with assault courses, our challenge courses is a  series of real and imaginary obstacles designed to challenge groups and individuals to work together to accomplish a task.

We use these for:

Cooperative Games, Socialization Activity, Ice-Breaker: A fun activity designed to reduce inhibitions and break down barriers. These activities are often not based on a defined task but on a sequence of events. Participants are often placed in positions where they are encouraged to try new things that may place them outside their normal comfort zones.

Group Initiative: Problems involving real and imaginary ground-based obstacles (either natural or constructed) that challenge a group to pool their resources and work together to find solutions. Success is achieved only when all members have contributed to the outcome.Egner-Photography-Frank Chapman-IMG_0723
