BOLD Groups

BOLD Programs


Below are our most common program arrangements, but BOLD is willing to work within whatever time constraints you have (whether it’s one hour or one week) and will work with you to determine the best program for your group and goals to deliver the best hands-on adventure learning experience possible.

Some principles a BOLD program can highlight include:

  • Teamwork
  • Trust
  • Communication
  • Problem-solving
  • Team bonding through share challenges, fun, and adventure experience
  • Overcoming challenges
  • Leadership development

TWO-HOUR ENERGIZER

A short session of high-energy challenges can create a more welcoming setting, break down barriers, and stimulate more open and honest conversation. BOLD staff members can facilitate a short program to accomplish these goals and more. We can come to your meeting or welcome you on our challenge course for a session almost any time of day or week.

HALF-DAY CHALLENGE (3.5 hours)

While all challenges require the imagination and cooperation of every participant, the real challenge lies in the communication skills and confidence of the team. The aim is to maximize the group's experience for total effectiveness. The agenda includes team building initiatives, low element challenges, and one high element event. BOLD’s half-day program is designed to meet the specific needs of every group that participates.  

THREE-QUARTER-DAY EXPERIENCE (5.5 hours)

This program is designed to incorporate the Group Development Initiative activities so they complement each other during a more involved team development experience. The Team Building Challenge consists of 'fixed' elements ranging from 6 inches to 14 feet off the ground. This is an excellent intermediate step between the Group Development Initiative and the Elevated Adventure.

The day’s intensity builds on the Group Development Initiative by incorporating 2-3 high element challenges. Also included is a meal, to be delivered half way through the experience.

FULL DAY ADVENTURE (7.5 hours)

An Elevated Learning Adventure builds on the activities that take place during the Team Building Challenge. Time allows for more high element experiences anywhere from thirty feet to fifty feet above the ground. The program is meant to be a continuation of the Group Development Initiative and Team Building Challenge, using teamwork and trust skills learned while experiencing earlier program components. The high elements also require problem-solving skills, decision-making, and confidence in yourself and your team. Furthermore, before leaving the ground, each person is carefully oriented in the appropriate operation of the equipment. 

The day’s schedule builds on the initiatives and team building challenge components in a way to prepare participants for high element challenges. A meal is included and delivered at the halfway point in the day to allow for reflection, social time, and refueling.
