Full-Day Combination Challenge Course

Program Information

Full-Day Combination Challenge Course Program

Our Full-Day Combination Programs typically start with ground-level activities and then transition over to our High Ropes Course. Ground-level team building activities are designed to build and bond teams and groups through different games and initiatives. Once your group has bonded through playful challenges, we will then see how they work together at height on Tar Heel Towers. That is our state of the art, three level high ropes course. It consists of trials and obstacles that require teamwork to be completed. Full-Day Combination Programs are among the most challenging that we offer. But, because of the power of overcoming challenges together, groups often find these programs especially meaningful.

After every activity, our facilitators guide your group through discussions, called debriefs.
