Half-Day Combination Challenge Course

Program Information

Half-Day Combination Challenge Course Program

Our half-day combination programs are designed to build and bond teams and groups through different activities and initiatives. Typically, these types of programs start with ground-level activities, and then finish on one of our exciting satellite high elements. The group’s representative will work with the Challenge Course Program Manager in advance of the scheduled program to select their preferred satellite high element depending on the size of the group, physical limitations/ability level, and the group’s goals for the program. 

For the beginning of the day, we program playful games and challenges that encourage groups to get to know each other and address team dynamics, communication skills, empathy, and perspective. The activities we facilitate always depend on the nature of your group, based on the information you provided in your pre-program questionnaire. 

At the end of the program, we will transition over to one of four possible satellite high elements: the Zip Line, the Flying Squirrel, the Team Swing, or for smaller and extra-adventurous groups, the Leap of Faith.



We call this activity “360 Whale Watch,” it’s one of many possible activities we may run for your group depending on their goals for the day, physical abilities, and problem-solving skills.




This is another possible activity that is less physically demanding and more mentally challenging.





Choose one of the following four satellite high elements:

Our Tandem 1200-foot Zip Line!

Our Leap of Faith!

Our Giant Team Swing!

Our Flying Squirrel!
