School, Scout & Youth Group Field Trips

Have fun building relationships and learning outside of the classroom.

Bring Your Group Closer Together

We love building field trip and group outing programs for school groups, scout groups, youth groups, youth athletic teams, college undergrad programs, and more!

  • The Power of Play: All of our programs are carefully designed to motivate cooperation and creative problem solving through outdoor play.
  • Outdoor Experiential Learning: Our programs provide lessons not learned in traditional classrooms.
  • Challenge by Choice: Your team members will not be asked to do things they are not comfortable with. We encourage, but we don’t force anyone into unsafe situations.

What A Typical Youth Program Looks Like

Outdoor Adventure

The great outdoors brings teams together! Our adventures range from easy to challenging so every team member can participate. Choose from the low ropes course, the 8-routes of our 43-foot high ropes course, the zipline, the climbing tower, and giant swing.

Youth Team Building Exercises

Choose from hundreds of games we’ve developed throughout the years for teams to learn, laugh and share, while accomplishing self esteem and specific team relationship goals.

Curriculum Based Programs

Is your school looking for a topic related learning experience to define problems, analyze and interpret data and solve problems? We offer fun, outdoor learning experiences including:

  • A science unit on the Chesapeake Watershed
  • An english unit on controlling language (The topic of how intonation, pitch, volume, pause, and rate all influence meaning)
  • A math unit in physics—our giant swing is one big math problem to solve.
