At High Trek, we are applying and informing the latest moves in adaptive team building. We do this through input from our clients, creative problem solving, and the humility to value customer experience over our own concept of team building.
At the end of the day, if you want team building with no running, bending, throwing, or other high impact activities, you can have it! Just let us know your needs and we can adapt our team building to meet them.

High Trek team builders are trained in experiential education principles. The type of team building offered is a bit more intentioned.
During your team building session, you should expect to set goals, discuss group and personal performance in tasks, and make plans for future work together.
Everything is an invitation. We don't "make" participants participate. They are invited to find the level of participation that makes them feel challenged - not panicked or complacent.
No matter how brilliant the lesson provided, if you're having a bad time, you're probably not interested. All of our team building experiences are designed to be fun first.
All adventure activities carry inherent risk of three types - physical, social, and emotional. Our team builders design experiences to best mitigate all three types of risk.
"Does High Trek work with youth for team building?" is one of the most common question we receive about team building.
The answer is yes! We are love to work with youth.
We find youth ages 12 and up benefit most from our standard team building programs. However, for younger guests, we are happy to integrate team building as a smaller part of their High Trek experience.
Our past youth team building clients include schools, sports teams, leadership and service groups, church groups, and recreational youth programs.
Do review the information in this section, but also know that when you book a team building program, our staff will be in communication leading up to the day of event. We will pass on necessary steps to prepare several times.
There are requirements for the ropes course that are not in place for team building.

"Alex and the team were amazing. We came to High trek for a team bonding experience. The girls had a great time and learned a lot. Thanks, Spark fastpitch"
"My son and I came with a group of 40-50 people. I was very nervous about our set adventure; In my old age, i have developed a slight fear of heights. lol I was reassured with team trust building activities before getting geared up; these activities were super fun and my son and I had a blast!
While climbing the course, there was so much support from the staff and the rest of my group. We all supported one another. I felt very safe.
I would go again and recommend High Trek Adventures to my friends and family. :)
The staff are AMAZING!"
