What is a Challenge Course?
"It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves."
-- Sir Edmund Hillary
Activities on the challenge course are planned for intentional FUN. Each experience is designed to spark group discussions around:
- Problem Solving
- Goal Setting
- Leadership Development
- Group Bonding
- And more...
Your experience may include games, initiatives, low elements that focus on group trust and teamwork, or high elements designed to challenge individuals and groups within a controlled risk environment. Participants on the high elements are required to wear harnesses and helmets and are connected to a belay system. All challenge course activities are designed and presented with a great consideration for your psychological, emotional and physical safety.
Partnering with You
Our challenge course is an excellent teaching tool for many groups. We customize your program to fit the specific goals and needs of your group, enabling you to get the most out of your experience.
Tilikum works under a "choose your challenge' philosophy.
In all of our activites:
- You may choose your level of involvement and commitment.
- You are encouraged to accept challenges beyond your normal comfort zone.
- You are not coerced or forced to participate at a level beyond your choosing.
- You will experience a setting of care and respect for each individual and his or her choices.
Each facilitator is carefully trained for leadership and safety on the challenge course to provide your group the highest quality experiential adventure program. All facilitators hold a current certification recognized by the Association for Challenge Course Technology.
