our commitment to you:

Heartland's team building course is custom designed to meet both personal and organizational developmental goals for groups of all kinds.

Our facilitators are trained and experienced to challenge your group while maintaining a safe environment.  We operate on the philosophy "your challenge, your choice."  We will encourage individuals and groups to push beyond perceived boundaries, but will not allow pressure on any participant to engage in activities outside of their own comfort or safety limits.

“THE SUMMIT”-high ropes course

Reach new heights as you are challenged to overcome barriers on The Summit’s 40 foot tower. Trained facilitators will customize your challenge experience to help you reach your group's desired outcomes. These experiences often help build self-confidence and awareness, generate a focus on team support, inclusion and encouragement.  And it’s just plain fun! For an abbreviated, just-for-fun high ropes session, see "Clip" below.
