Teambuilding/Leadership FAQ’s

How Physical Is This Program?
There is some minor physical activity in this program. Participants should feel comfortable participating at a moderate activity level for about two hours. Keep in mind that we will make the greatest effort to adapt initiatives to include ALL participants in a meaningful way. If you have health concerns, please bring them to us before the program so we can make the necessary accommodations. All medical information will be held in the strictest confidentiality.

I’m worried that some of the group, team or class members won’t be able to participate.
We practice a style of facilitation that includes everyone in a meaningful way. Our facilitators are versatile and skilled in including folks of all ages and all abilities.

What should I wear?
Individuals should wear comfortable rubber-soled, close-toed shoes that they feel comfortable wearing. No high-heels please. Individuals should wear clothes that are comfortable, but able to sustain a grass stain or two. Clothes should not be too loose or too restrictive and allow for movement. Check the weather. We like to be outside when possible, so bring a sweatshirt or jacket if you get cold easily. Dress in layers. It’s better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

I’m nervous about the elements. What if I’m too afraid to participate?
No one will be asked to do anything they don’t want to do. We practice the “Challenge by Choice” philosophy that allows participants to engage initiatives on their own terms. While this isn’t a ticket to not participate, it allows individuals to choose the level of the challenge on their terms when they feel ready.

Also, keep in mind, your group won’t arrive and “jump” onto the elements. Your group will be guided through a sequence of initiatives in which the group will develop and explore issues such as trust and communication. Safety, spotting and group expectations will also be carefully explored and practiced. When and if the time comes for the group to attempt one of our elements, you may be more ready than you think.

Do you have bathrooms?
We offer a fully accessible facility and restrooms that can accommodate groups of all sizes and individuals of all abilities.
