Based on the belief that all successful teams need to practice, our team building programs make use of a variety of educational tools—group initiative activities, low ropes elements, high ropes courses, and climbing walls—to do just that, help teams practice team skills. Groups are given a series of tasks and constraints which enable them to explore critical problem-solving, group decision-making, communication, leadership, and teamwork skills. Between activities, our facilitators will help groups assess their performance and process, lead discussions regarding best practices, interject short skill sessions, and help groups develop action plans to move forward. Used as a learning tool, our programs can help school and youth groups to develop successful team strategies and create a foundation of trust from which to build. Through feedback loops, critical analysis, and implementation of an action learning process, corporate and adult professionals can gain insight into their team that directly impact their performance at work.

What People are SayingTestimonials for Arbortrek Canopy Adventures
Guides were awesome! The progressive stage setup is perfect. I would not change a thing. Your guides never deviated from safety through-out the course. Perfectly executed. Signed - Former U.S Army Air Assault Team Leader.
Guides were wonderful. They were fun, humorous, informative, and, of course, professional. They helped to make the entire experience fantastic!
Had a great time and a good value for the price.
Expert guides who were very patient and reassuring. They helped us have a pleasant and memorable experience.
We vacation in Stowe every year and hope to make ArborTrek a regular part of our vacation. Next year we hope our other adult children can join us!
I would easily return for another tour in the future. The routes were wonderfully scenic and the zips were both easy to learn but gradually had moments of higher intensity. I'm glad I pushed my own limits.
Both guides were highly competent and professional, each with a great sense of humor. They helped us feel confident and able to do zip-lining, especially since it was our first time and we were both feeling a little anxious at first.
SCHOOL, YOUTH, AND COMMUNITY TEAM BUILDING PROGRAMS
Our adventure-based team building program makes use of Group Initiatives,” involving real and imaginary ground-based obstacles that present physical, mental, and emotional challenges and invite groups to explore teamwork strategies and demonstrate for themselves the importance of planning, cooperation, and communication.
The success of a group in meeting the challenges of an initiatives sequence will depend not only upon individual strengths but also upon creativity, tenacity, strategic planning, shared risk taking, the allocation of resources, and the ability to create a climate in which individuals are able to trust each other and in which each member’s contributions are recognized and valued. In the process, members should discover their collective power to meet the ongoing challenge of work in other settings. Whatever the focus of a program, nearly every group comes away from the experience with a renewed sense of community and common purpose.
Team building programs can be run as stand-alone half-day or full-day sessions or combined with our Treetop Obstacle Course, Climbing Adventure, or Zip Line Canopy Tour.
