The Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center hosts affordable team building and leadership programs for a wide range of groups, including student organizations, church youth groups, adult leadership, and corporate groups. We can provide Low Ropes Course, Obstacle Course, and High Ropes Course programs. All programs at the Center are flexible. Our instructors will work with you to develop a program that fits your needs based on your goals, schedule, budget, group size, and group age.
The low ropes course is an excellent choice for groups that wish to build teamwork and unity among their participants. Common concepts include communication, trust, cooperation, encouragement, and goal setting.
The Low Ropes program consists of two main sections:
(1) Team initiatives - lower impact activities that are designed to introduce the group to critical concepts
(2) Low-ropes style elements - more physically challenging elements that reinforce and develop the concepts that have been introduced.
Our unique Leadership Course is a head-to-head course that is excellent as a final activity. Teams apply the concepts learned into a fun and competitive environment. Participants get wet and muddy. We highly recommend this program for active youth and college groups! The obstacle course is sure to be an event that your team will remember!
There are two obstacle courses to choose from:
(1) The traditional obstacle course on the ball field. This course involves getting wet and dirty.
(2) The Mud Obstacle Course. The course new in 2012 has six full mud pit elements and multiple dry elements. Participants will be VERY muddy!
The high ropes course presents a set of more challenging elements that are designed to develop individuals by helping them:
Overcome challenges and fears
Experience high levels of achievement
Expand comfort zones
We operate under the "Challenge by Choice" philosophy, so participants have the option to select their personal level of challenge in all activities.
For information about options for School/Educational Student Organizations, see our B.A.S.I.C. Training program.
