Eagle Ridge Conference Center is home to a Challenge Course team building program that provides a memorable experience for both businesses and individuals. The programs’ challenges vary in how they are presented to each group depending on dynamics, participants’ levels of comfort with physical activities, team concepts being illustrated by the activity and other criteria.
The Team Expedition training sessions run four to eight hours. The team gets brief training in map reading and compass use. The objective for the team is to devise a plan and locate a maximum of 24 control points within a one-mile radius of the Conference Center. The team coordinates the efforts of “field teams” and the “base camp” by using two-way radios. The activity parallels many work environments.
