GOAL Program - Challenge Course

Teambuilding & Leadership Development

GOAL is an acronym for for Group Oriented Achievement and Learning. 

All GOAL programming is based on Experiential Education principles and philosophy using initiatives and activities that are socially, mentally, physically, and environmentally challenging.  Activities are designed to strengthen group cohesiveness, communication, trust, group processing, interpersonal relationships, individual members' self-awareness and confidence level.  Within the GOAL program our staff will specially tailor a program to fit your group needs. 

Types of GOAL Programs

High Elements focus on individual achievements by providing the opportunity to push oneself both physically and mentally through controlled risk-taking situations.  The group is also challenged to provide support and encouragement in order to create the type of environment that will assist individuals in accomplishing their goals. For group development, groups must participate in a Lows Program prior to or on the same day as the Highs.
