Team Challenge Course

(2 to 3 hours)

The Team Challenge Course is our on-the-ground (low ropes) teambuilding course. During a Team Challenge Course, our staff will present your group with a series of challenges that focus on trust, effective communication, conflict resolution, and other leadership topics. You identify the learning outcomes for your group and we customize a course just for you, choosing from a bank of nearly 100 different initiatives. Activities can be all physically challenging, all cognitively challenging, or a mix of both. Many groups choose to combine a TCC with one of the high ropes options.

Venture Out is an experiential learning zone. Your group will leave having learned something. During each activity, your group will have to work through conflict in order to succeed. Each activity concludes with a thorough debrief, where your group can reflect on how their actions during the challenge could apply to their group outside Venture Out.

Need us to come to you? No problem! We can hold a Team Challenge Course at the outdoor or indoor location of your choice. Venture Out has held programs at high schools, businesses, parks, conference centers, and more. See “Indoor Team Challenge Courses” tab on the left for more.

Our Team Challenge Courses are our most accessible courses. We can design courses for groups of all ages and ability levels. The pavilion at the Venture Out complex is ADA accessible.

Indoor Team Challenge Course

(1 to 3 hours)

Formerly called “Venture Games,” indoor Team Challenge Courses bring all the fun and challenge of a Team Challenge Course to the indoor or outdoor location of your choice! These courses are great for high school or college classes, for when your group doesn’t have time to travel, and for the cold winter months.

Activities used during indoor programs usually are less physically challenging and more cognitively challenging. We can do an indoor Team Challenge Course anywhere with a wide open space. Gyms, conference centers, and open fields are all great options.

Need a space? Let us know, and we can book a room for you on the MU campus.

 

StrengthsQuest + Team Challenge Course

(2 to 3 hours for course, 30 minutes for online StrengthsQuest assessment)

These courses are the same as regular Team Challenge Courses, but your group takes the StrengthsQuest talent assessment beforehand.

StrengthsQuest is a 30-minute online personality assessment designed by Gallup. Based on your responses, it will determine your top five talent themes. The assessment is all about focusing on your natural talents to maximize your potential. If you would like your group to take the StrengthsQuest assessment, you can purchase StrengthsQuest codes from Venture Out for $10 per person. Each participant will take the online assessment on their own time prior to coming to Venture Out. Then, during your Venture Out course, our facilitators will incorporate themes and language from StrengthsQuest in your group debriefs.

As with all our low ropes courses, you can combine your StrenghtsQuest/Team Challenge Course with a high ropes element.
