Almost ready to book a program? Here's what to consider.

What type of program are you looking for?

For Challenge Programs

We can develop just a low challenge course program, a high challenge course program, or a combination of the two. Learn more about our low- and high-challenge course elements.

For Adventure Programs 

We will customize your adventure based on the activities that you select. You can do one of them or all of them; the possibilities are endless.

How long of a program would you like?

The duration of a program depends on you and the goals you hope to have accomplished. Typically, most groups book between a 3-6 hour program. We can do more or less; that’s the benefit of customized programs.

How many participants would attend?

Staffing needs are based on the number of individuals participating in the program, as well as the type of program you select. For most of our activities, including our low challenge course, we have a 1:15 ratio. For a high-challenge course program, we offer a 1:8 ratio. 

Will your program occur during a meal time?

If so, there are a few available options. Cook for yourselves in our industrial kitchen, bring potluck dishes, or have the College’s caterer take care of you.
