The Berry Outdoor Leadership Development (BOLD)
Program provides teambuilding and adventure challenges for college and
community groups. BOLD has been active for over 40 years, using its own brand
of experiential learning to foster leadership and teamwork in thousands of
BOLD programs combine hands-on challenges with
everyday circumstances. Staff members work closely and creatively with clients
to accomplish the group’s goals and objectives within their schedule and budget.
The BOLD challenge course is an experiential learning tool that can be used to
focus in on a number of interpersonal and intrapersonal principles. BOLD
operates with a challenge by choice philosophy, encouraging individuals to
challenge themselves and challenge each other while respecting personal choice,
freedom, and empowerment. While BOLD experiences are facilitated to the highest
safety standard and to the end of learning new things, every BOLD program is
characterized by fun and adventure.
Our challenge course consists of low elements,
which are cabled and wooden structures approximately 3 feet from the ground,
and high elements, which elevate participants to heights of over 30 feet on
trees, poles, cables, and platforms. All structures are maintained and
inspected regularly and facilitated by qualified staff. The BOLD program
strives to be compliant with Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT)
BOLD serves student groups, campus organizations, departmental and office staff
groups, sports teams, work teams, and other organizations in the Berry College
and surrounding community. Our program can use the high and low challenge
course, various outdoor and indoor spaces on Berry’s expansive campus, and can
even come to your location to facilitate group development experiences.
BOLD, as a part of Berry College Recreation, can also compliment
challenge course experiences with extended outdoor adventure activities to give
you a unique experience and accomplish your team development goals.
