Add an Amazing Place Challenge to your climb! 

Choose from one of two interactive outdoor experiences which provide students with activities that get their minds and bodies moving! Working in small teams, students will compete to finish a series of tasks before and after their climb. Activities incorporate curriculum standards-based elements and 21st-century skill building!

The Leadership Challenge
Participants will race to complete a series of tasks designed to activate various elements of leadership, including problem-solving, decision making, and group dynamics. Activities may include, but are not limited to, a trust walk, a game of giant Jenga, and a team tarp flip; in addition to multiple 21st century skills such as encouraging active participation, verbal and non-verbal communication, trust building, collaboration, and teamwork.
