The Baylor Challenge Course experiential learning programs are designed to assist groups in developing teamwork and friendship while facilitating individual growth and self-confidence.
For the past 20 years the Baylor Challenge course has facilitated an estimated 35,000 participants from the Baylor community, schools, non-profit organizations, youth groups, businesses, and sports teams.
The Challenge Course is an experience for everyone, athletes and non-athletes alike. It is about participation and offering one's best talents, ideas, support and encouragement, not just physical skill or exertion.
What to Expect
Our typical program is four to six hours and consists of a progression of activities that include warm-ups, large group games, initiatives, small group challenges, trust activities, and low and high elements. Extended, 6-8 hour and multi-day programs are also available.
Aimed at creating a fun, high-energy environment for participants to get to know each other. This program could be paired with your retreat, training, meeting or as a stand alone event.
Intended for new forming groups or those with new members and concentrates on helping to build relationship based on trust, strengthen group unity and develop identity.
Designed for established groups and focuses on working towards deeper group bonds, addressing specific group behaviors and greater group performance.
Focuses on building a more unified, cohesive and collaborative team of teachers and administrators. Interactive, fun and meaningful activities will help educators transfer their experience back to the campus and into the classroom.
We can bring the Challenge Course to you. All of our low team building activities can be done in any workplace, gym, meeting room, or outdoor space at your desired location.
Games and Activities
Designed to engage groups and warm up for the day and allow for fun. Ice breakers designed to bring down barriers and help participants know each other better.
Designed to test the group's ability to problem solve and think critically. Facilitators use a sequence of unique challenges based on the group needs and goals to aid participants in thinking outside the box and address the group dynamics of communication, trust, and leadership as well as others specific to the group.
Intended to mesh with the initiatives that complement each other for a half or whole day team development experience. The elements consist of challenges just off the ground. This is an excellent intermediate step between group initiatives and the High Traversing Elements.
High Traversing Elements
Consisting of individual challenges at heights from thirty to fifty feet above the ground, this program is designed to be a continuation of the Low Element challenges and group initiatives, utilizing the teamwork and trust skills the team has learned. High Traversing Elements require problem-solving skills and confidence in yourself and your team. Prior to leaving the ground, each participant is carefully oriented to the challenge.
High Specialty Elements
The programs at the Eastland Lakes Challenge Course are designed for participants in moderate to good health with average to good mobility. We recommend participants familiarize themselves with the requirements, restrictions, and risks prior to committing.
