Our Experience-Based Team and Development (EBTD) programs involve adventure-based corporate team building challenges designed to expand upon initiatives already in progress in the workplace. Team building programs are designed to provide a laboratory-type experience where, given a series of tasks and constraints, groups are able to explore critical problem-solving, group decision-making, communication, leadership, and teamwork skills. These high-energy enterprises get team members out of the office, out of their comfort zones, and challenge them physically, mentally, and emotionally. Along the way, our team leaders facilitate discussions aimed at investigating group perceptions, capturing learning, and transferring relevant learning back to the workplace in the form of action items and benchmarks.


Looking to improve group morale? Preparing for a change intervention? Need to clarify the team vision? Develop team leaders? Our corporate team building and leadership development programs are custom designed to meet the growing needs of each organization we serve.

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 team-building 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 critically 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 corporate team building programs can help groups to rapidly assess performance issues, address behaviors, improve process, and develop essential teamwork skills. Through feedback loops, critical analysis, and implementation of an action learning process, group members will gain insights into their team that directly impact their performance at work.

Whether run as a stand-alone program or incorporated as part of a more sophisticated organizational development process, our corporate team building programs are designed to meet the needs of each group. Programs are generally run in half- or full-day sessions, but may be expanded to multi-day events when combined with other adventure-based team bonding activities or scheduled to complement meetings and skill sessions.


  • Assess team processes, people, and performance
  • Improve morale
  • Develop stronger relationships
  • Increase awareness of team issues
  • Practice and improve teamwork skills
  • Incorporate new members


With the focus on strengthening relationships and improving team problem-solving, our Jumpstart Team Building Program includes a series of fast-paced, ground-level team challenges (group initiatives). Challenges are followed by short discussions to help participants gain new insights, strategize, action plan, and to celebrate success. This program is ideal for groups that want to:

  • Build relationships
  • Incorporate new members into the team
  • Establish a set of standards for new teams
  • Create a more collaborative working environment
  • Learn new team skills
  • Assess team performance under adverse conditions
  • Explore new team strategies
  • Assess team dynamics and leadership potentional
  • Improve team problem-solving

Although activities vary according to participant and group needs, groups should expect to complete a series of outdoor, adventure-based group challenges interspersed with action planning and skill development sessions. Indoor programs are available off-site or at our site during off-peak season. Approximately 60% of workshop time is spent engaged in activities, and 40% of time is spent reflecting, analyzing, and creating action plans. Discussion at the end of the event is spent helping connect learned skills back to the workplace.

Jumpstart programs can be run in half-day or full-day sessions, or combined with one of our team bonding programs. On-site meeting space and food service can also be arranged.


The ArborTrek Team Challenge pits workgroups or intact work teams against the clock to complete tasks, strategize, network with other groups, solve challenges, and score as many points as possible to further the entire organization. This high-paced, friendly competition takes teams through the woods from challenges on the ground, on the courts, and even into the air. Each team is provided a backpack with clues, missions, and resources. The Goal: score as many points as possible in a limited amount of time. A team’s success at the ArborTrek Team Challenge will depend on their ability to communicate effectively, strategize, pool their resources, and work collectively to complete the mental and physical challenges.

Designed to meet the needs of your team or an entire workgroup, the ArborTrek Team Challenge can be built toward a variety of outcomes and is a great addition to any corporate event or celebration where the goal is to encourage networking, incorporate new members, celebrate team successes, learn team skills, and re-energize. Time will be spent at the end of each event capturing and sharing learning.

Programs can be run as a half-day or full-day event and can be combined with one of our team bonding programs. On-site meeting space and food service can also be arranged.
