SUMMIT Outdoor Challenge Course


The SUMMIT is great for both newly-formed and long-standing groups. If you and your group want a challenge and some fun, you'll find both on the SUMMIT! Every SUMMIT session is customized to address the specific needs of each group.

The SUMMIT utilizes a variety of activities including icebreakers team initiatives, problem solving, and advanced challenges. All of these methods help to teach and reinforce team concepts such as communication, creative problem solving, and conflict resolution. 

Throughout the session, debrief activities are lead by SUMMIT facilitators. During these discussions, lessons learned during the program are integrated into useful applications to real life situations.
