“Hi Matt,
I wanted to congratulate you on your fantastic staff. We’ve taken this group, or parts of it, to Upward Enterprises and Go Ape for sort-of similar activities. Your program far exceeds both of those programs.Our group had a great time.
Please thank our guides – they really were outstanding.”

April Wallace, Georgetown University/Providence Hospital -Family Medicine Residency


“Matt, We thoroughly enjoyed our off-site program at the Sheraton!  We found the exercises thought provoking and expertly designed to create possibilities and ensure team cohesiveness.  We learned the many intracacies of the “team” dynamic from Terrapin and now, KRA is a stronger workforce as a result.  BRAVO Terrapin and BRAVO KRA!”

Wenda Harbour, KRA Corporation


“Matt, Words can’t express how grateful I am to you for taking such great care of our team!  The experience was exactly how I imagined and you and Jason couldn’t have been better in your facilitation.  The group was very complimentary of you and the amazing facility you have.  So kind of you to forward the pictures for us.  The pictures will provide a lifetime of memories for us all!”

Blair Philbrick Pentec Health Incorporated


“Hi Matt,  Thanks again for you and your teams time and effort yesterday.  From the opening exercise through the ball balancing, the “trolley” and the alligator boards, and the closing exercises – everyone was engaged and having fun.  Based on the quick review of the evaluations I looked at this morning, the staff was very pleased with the time and the team building.”

Colleen Luzeir, Founder and President of HR Solutions, Inc.

“Hi Shaun,

Thank you for reaching out to me. We had a wonderful day at Terrapin Adventures. Your staff was excellent and our students had an unforgettable experience. Pauline is doing well and her classmates have supported her and encourage her. She was an inspiration in how she stepped out of her comfort zone and didn’t allow fear to stop her from enjoying the experience. Thank you & the team for being supportive, caring, and professional too.”

“Hi Lisa,

Our group had a terrific time at your facility. Overall the students thought that the activities were engaging, challenging, and helped them to work together to problem solve. We processed the trip and experiences the next day in class and the students had the opportunity to share their favorite activity and what they felt really challenged them. The students also went home and shared with their parents what an incredible, fun, and scary (at times) experience they had.

From a teachers’ perspective, we felt that both counselors were well equipped to deal the students. Both managed the students well, handled any stress or hesitation that arose, provide a safe but encouraging atmosphere for the students to take risks. We thought that the counselors’ responses to the students demonstrated knowledge of child development for middle school students. As their teacher, I could see the difference the next day as the students interacted with their peers. They were more confident and trusted that their classmates respected and valued them. Having a convenient location for lunch and bathroom facilities was also key.”

“Dear Matt

I wanted to write to you right away to let you know how exceptional the group of professionals that you had with our students were – they were invested in the program and they engaged the new students and the seniors- not an easy task- please let them know how appreciative I am of the work they did- I know that the program was complex but you and the team were great!”

“Holy Trinity Summer Camps have been coming to Terrapin Adventures for the past four years and it is always the highlight of the summer. The course and challenges are great and the campers always have wonderful time. Your staff does an excellent job of encouraging the campers to push themselves outside their comfort zone, and make sure they have a fun time while doing so. I am very much looking forward to returning with my campers next summer.”

Non-Profit Testimonials

Shaun,

Each and everyone of us had a wonderful time and great things were taken away from the event. I received excellent feedback from the warriors about their experiences pre and post the event. In addition, many spoke about their fears and anxieties that they faced and conquered with the activities provided at Terrapin Adventures.

Hi Jason

I can vouch for the while Yu Ying teacher team when I say we had an incredible experience at Terrapin Adventures. The activities your staff conducted with our groups were excellent and really pushed us think outside the box, improve communication, and learn to better work as a team. We were often surprised and proud of the outcome of each task we ere tested with. The zip line and giant swing were thrilling and fun; they pushed several of our teachers to face their fears and many enjoyed the experience.

Shaun,

Good to hear from you.  We all had a great day.  We really enjoyed all the activities you facilitated with us.  You and Jim did a great job identifying some of the attributes of our team.  Like you, I was very proud of my staff because they did step out of their comfort zone and I really saw the staff encouraging those who were more timid.  I now hope that we will see some of that encouragement, support and camaraderie carry over day to day at Leland. We have a lot of new staff so it was a good time to have a team building day.

I am hopeful we will be able to come out to Terrapin Adventures again.  We are all looking forward to seeing our pictures of FB.

Thanks again ,

Kate

Sports Team Testimonials

Hi Matt,

Just wanted you to know that the Strongsville Lady Mustangs Soccer team thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Terrapin Adventures!!! It was just the type of challenge we were looking for. Shaun did an awesome job of organizing the large group. The coaches/seniors had a customized experience just as we had hoped. All the chaperones enjoyed themselves and loved watching the team take on different elements.
