Teambuilding

Does your group (team/staff) want to become more effective team players? Need to improve communication?  Want to identify leaders? Need to work on trust?

Kent State University's Adventure Center has just the program for you!  Our teambuilding programs strive to create a meaningful experience catered to each group’s individual needs.

High Ropes Challenge Course

The indoor high ropes challenge course is a series of belayed activities fixed 30-feet high in the multipurpose gym at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. The focus of these activities can be both on the individual and the group. The group is there to support its team members as they attempt elements. This activity requires a high level of physical exertion.

Low Ropes Challenge Course

Our outdoor low ropes challenge course located at Allerton Sports Complex is a series of activities attached to trees or poles by boards, cables and ropes. These activities focus on building a more effective team in a fun, hands-on way. Low ropes elements are anywhere from two to six feet off the ground. Spotting techniques are taught and needed to safely implement solutions to problems.

Teambuilding "To-Go"

These mobile (we can come to you!) ground activities are designed to help the group work towards the goals set forth by the group’s leader. Activities are fun and challenging and are followed by a period of reflection where groups link their performance during the activity to how they function outside of the teambuilding program. Connections are made to real life examples so the experience can be impactful and long-lasting.

Cardboard Regatta Boat Building

Small teams get a roll of duct tape, a 4x8 foot piece of cardboard, and other miscellaneous supplies to build a boat. Two team members then have to paddle the boat into open water and back in a race to the finish. Teams use strategic planning, communication, creativity, and other skills to successfully complete the challenge. Yes, some people will get wet!

Scavenger Hunt on Campus or Downtown

We can set up a scavenger hunt course for your team throughout campus or in downtown Kent. Clues will be given and problems will be solved in order to make your way from stop to stop. Teams will be timed and the fastest team to complete the course will be deemed the scavenger hunt champion. Stay and enjoy what the university or city has to offer with your team after the event.

Pricing

We can combine activity options to create a custom program for your group! We offer different rates for university groups, non-profit organizations, and businesses. Programs generally last 2-3 hours.
