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.
principles a BOLD program can highlight include:
bonding through share challenges, fun, and adventure experience
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)
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.
EXPERIENCE (5.5 hours)
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.
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.
DAY ADVENTURE (7.5 hours)
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.
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.
