TimberRidge Challenge Course Programs
Challenge Course Programs
During a challenge course session, teams will have the opportunity to participate in several different challenges that will test the group both physically and mentally. Bring your creativity and imagination with you to help solve the team challenges. TimberRidge offers both a low course (ground to 12 feet) and high course (ground to 50 feet) program. Groups can choose from a ½ day (low only program) or a full day (low or high course) program depending on their needs. A TimberRidge Health and Liability form must be filled out for anyone going on the course, participants and observers. These will be in your contract if you book a challenge course reservation.
The challenge course is located atop the rugged southern ridge of the property and consists of a dynamic series of elements, each with its own team building or problem solving objective. Activities can be customized to meet specific personal growth and team building needs. Experiences on our course leave a lasting and meaningful impression.
We follow the ANSI/ACCT Challenge Course and Canopy/Zip line Tour Standards published by the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT). Our course is run by a certified challenge course manager and is one of the few courses in the area with both Level I and Level II certified facilitators.
Our challenge course follows the philosophy of “Your Challenge, Your Choice” to incorporate elements of fun and excitement in a noncompetitive, safe, and supportive atmosphere. Individuals may choose their level of participation for each event.
