Team Building

Real Team Challenge Course 

Get your employees out of the office, break down political and personal barriers, eliminate distractions, and most of all, have some FUN!

The Real Team Challenge Course is a low ropes program at Saluda Shoals Park offering a series of physical and mental challenges designed to improve the performance and cohesiveness of a group. 

Development and leadership concepts are taught through a series of action-based learning activities. Each challenge draws on the knowledge of every person on the team and requires group participation and cooperation for success. 

After each challenge is complete, experienced facilitators lead discussions exploring ways to become a more effective team. Real Team activities can also be customized to meet the needs of your organization.

What is a Low Ropes Course?

A series of cables, ropes and wooden beams placed among the trees form the elements of a low ropes course. The elements are built close to the ground so the perceived risk is low, but still challenging to complete.  

Participants walk tight-ropes, negotiate obstacles, balance elements as a team, pass teammates through a giant web and climb walls. During each element, teams explore risk taking, problem-solving, leadership skills and effective communication and with a strong focus on collaboration. 

Challenge Course programs are half day, full day or several days in length and can be customized to your team’s individual goals.
