Team Building and Low/High Challenge Course

GOLS offers unique programming opportunities in Group Development and Low/High Challenge Course initiatives. Our well trained staff and careful programming assure that safety is a first priority. Proper spotting and safety techniques are utilized and group members become part of the safety team which serves to develop support, communication, and accountability. Our instructors are trained and knowledgeable in safety procedures and standards set forth by the ACCT.  

Low Challenge Course

The Low Challenge Course is a series of problem-solving experiences that physically engage teams to develop and execute a plan. The challenges include a variety of low elements, games, and group initiatives. Each challenge draws on every team member's contributions—their ideas, their support, and their efforts. Our course provides a challenge for successful team performances, and triggers learning that is transferable to the workplace and personal lives.

TreeTop Adventure Trail- High Challenge Course

Our High Challenge Course, the TreeTop Adventure Trail, offers a variety of group and personal challenges. The course consists of 7 high elements that offer a mental and physical challenge that is unique to each individual. Groups can also utilize the Giant Swing, which is a standalone element that challenges each participant to push themsleves beyond their comfort zone. Please call for pricing and availability.

 

Giant Swing

The Giant Swing is an individual stand-alone element in which participants are lifted by their group to a comfortable height, and then released to swing through the trees.  The participant can choose how high they want to go and when to release the cable to begin swinging.
