2-Day Zip & Paddle

On this two-day excursion, we pair our Done–in-a-Day Team Building with a second day focused on learning about the local ecology and technical aspects of canoeing.

Our team-building programs are designed to strengthen the relationship of your group by improving communication and problem-solving skills as a team. We use our unique outdoor facility to challenge participants to work together, creating the ideal opportunity to develop their team-building skills.

Day 1: Team Building

Morning: Low ropes course: Participants will work together through various challenges to accomplish goals. These activities are designed to move beyond linear thought and provoke adaptive, strategic thinking.

Lunch: The group will enjoy a nutritious meal prepared by our kitchen staff.

Afternoon: High ropes course: Participants will be challenged to use the skills gained in the morning to conquer the high ropes course. The course consists of ladders, climbing ropes, and wires all culminating with the zip line.

Dinner: Participants will enjoy a nutritious meal prepared by our kitchen staff.

Evening: The group will get a chance to learn more about their immediate surroundings, outdoor safety, and enjoy the serenity of nature at night. The rest of the evening is available for participants to review the day’s events and conduct their own group activities. Great time for a campfire.

Then enjoy an overnight stay in one of our lodging options.

Day 2: Local Ecology & Basic Canoeing Skills

Breakfast: Participants will get started early with a nutritious meal prepared by our kitchen staff.

Morning: Local ecology and basic canoeing skills: Participants will take to the Shenandoah River to learn about the local ecology and watersheds of the Harpers Ferry area. Then, in teams of two, participantswill have a chance to paddle a canoe down the river and learn the technical aspects of canoeing.

Lunch: Midway through the trip, the group will break to enjoy lunch by the river.

Afternoon: Canoeing: After the lunch break, participants will continue their adventure down the river, enjoying impromptu learning opportunites along the way.

The individuals in your group will leave with fond memories and newly discovered confidence and trust in one another.
