Ropes Course Teambuilding for Youth and Adults in DC/MD/VA
Unlike many of the “ropes course” programs in the area, GO-Adventures challenge course teambuilding programs emphasize the development of trust and leadership.Eriq Powers - Founder
Recreational Teambuilding and Experiential Training Programs
The ROPES Challenge Course combines low ropes team building activities (physical and mental activities that build trust, enhance communication and improve problem-solving skills) with the high adrenaline challenge of the high elements (activities that take place 20 to 50 feet above the ground). The result is a high energy, teamwork-oriented event that bonds groups together through healthy risk-taking and shared adventure.
Teams of 8 to 15 participants transition through a sequence of low team building activities, designed to foster teamwork, improve problem-solving skills, and deepen trust between the members of the group. Following the low ropes activities, the team will move up to the high elements – activities that take place 20 to 50 feet off the ground. Our challenge course programs are designed specifically to foster leadership skills and the development of trust between the members of your team. Sample Low Element: Multi-Vine – the team will work together to traverse from one side of a foot cable to the other, using each other and a series of rope handles that hang down from a cable above. Sample High Element: The King’s Swing – while the rest of your team is ‘on belay’ (holding the climber safe on a rope) a team member ascends 20 feet up a tree, climbs out onto a platform and then jumps off to take a giant swing through the air. After arcing back and forth for a few swings, your team gently lowers you back down to the ground.
The ROPES Challenge Course Teambuilding program is designed for groups of 8 to 50 participants, ages 10 and above. Due to the highly teamwork-oriented activity sequencing, the challenge course is ideally suited to groups whose goal is to emphasize leadership skills development and building a strong foundation of trust between the members of the team. Similar to the Portable Team Challenge, facilitators will sequence activities to meet the stated goals and expectations of the group organizer, while at all times being attentive to the ever-changing dynamics of the team. If necessary, the program will be adjusted on the fly, in order to best serve the needs of the group. A unique benefit of experience-based teambuilding in general, and ROPES Challenge Course programming in particular, is the idea of the “novel experience.” With 4 locations to choose from, we hope to serve your group teambuilding goals at a ROPES Challenge Course that is close to you, and has a wide variety of activities to choose from!
