What is a Challenge Course?
A Challenge Course is a combination of mental and physical challenges requiring groups to work as a team to accomplish goals. Through a series of fun and unusual activities, participants learn valuable information about themselves, each other, and the group as a unit. By removing people from their usual environment and placing them in a new, unique setting, a challenge course experience fosters shared learning, openness, and cooperation.
Though there are some consistencies to every experience at the Lancer Recreation Leadership Course, each program is customized by Facilitators to address the specific goals and desires of each individual group. Programs range from 1.5 to 3.0 hours in length and are available seven days a week (not including Holidays)
General formats include:
Ground Level Team Building
Challenge by Choice Small Group Stations
Combination Programs (Bring It All Together)
Who can use the Challenge Course?
Groups that utilize the course include University of Windsor organizations (athletics, Greek, academic, student clubs, residence life, staff, and faculty groups), local school groups, youth groups, religious organizations, sports teams, and businesses. Participants come in all ages, shapes, sizes, and levels of physical abilities. Any group that would like to play and have fun together, learn about each other and build a sense of community are likely to benefit from a day at the Lancer Leadership Challenge Course.
There is a 8 person minimum group size. Groups generally vary between 15 and 125 people and group size does play a role in determining what type of programs are available for each group.
