Through the Challenge Course Experience
Team Building takes time and intentional effort to bring about lasting results. Issues of trust, respect, and communication need to be continuously examined for teams to function at their peak level. Understanding, mutual appreciation, problem-solving, and conflict resolution play a critical role in helping individuals function as team members working together toward a common mission.
A Team Building experience combines group and individual challenges that create a context for individuals to bond as a cohesive, supportive team. Through careful debriefing, team members have the opportunity to gain greater empathy, mutual respect, trust, and enhanced communication. All of these foundational qualities play a critical role in helping teams reach their potential.

Team-Building Initiatives and Low Ropes Course
Groups work together through carefully selected scenarios and challenges combined with opportunities for debriefing facilitated by trained challenge course professionals. Team Bulding experiences are customized by the facilitator based on the unique needs and goals of the group. Common needs and goals include:
- Emergence of individual strengths and roles
- Building of trust and confidence
- Creation of team/group unity
High Ropes Circuit and Climbing Tower
The 25-foot suspended High Ropes Circuit challenges team members to overcome the fear of perceived risk in a professionally supervised setting. The High Ropes circuit course brings participants out of their comfort zone and many times beyond what they thought could be accomplished.
The 40-foot Climbing Towerchallenges individuals to push harder and go higher than they may have thought possible. With the support of the whole team, and the help of our trained staff, climbers can overcome obstacles they may never attempt on their own.

The Challenge Course at Warm Beach Camp builds teamwork, cooperation and trust. It really strengthens a group. Not until you try to solve a problem do you discover people's roles. Every time a group comes, we see growth.Joe Wiederhold
