The Jim Wall Challenge Course is located 6 miles from Central Campus in Schenck Forest, a 245-acre plot used by the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources for research and teaching
All of our Team Building & Leadership Development programs are available to university groups, student clubs, community organizations, and businesses. We offer Low Course, High Ropes Course, and combination programs.
- The Low Course is primarily used to build team cohesion and strengthen communication within groups. Throughout the program, facilitators guide groups through a sequence of events that include games, initiatives, and low course elements. We have 12 low elements located on or near ground leve to focus on group communication and trust. Throughout the program, time is taken to debrief the experiences and transfer the learning outcomes back to “real world” situations. Participants can expect to get to know group members quickly, establish a sense of camaraderie and teamwork, and build an atmosphere of cooperation and trust.
- The Jim Wall High Challenge Course consists of 15 high course elements built 35 to 40 feet above ground that utilize a belay system for participant safety. High course elements push participants to go beyond their perceived limits while working as individuals or as a team. Participants are challenged to expand their comfort zone, build self-confidence, and overcome self-imposed barriers.
