“I think this was the best experience I have ever had with faculty and students.”

Alan Gindoff, Chair -Physician Assistant Department

“The experience was wonderful and the participants have continued to talk about it since leaving the facilities.  I appreciate Eric and team working to find ways the participants could perform the activities and learn from the experience.  Participants who are visually impaired or blind can perform the tasks, they just may have to find a different way of doing them, and the staff was accommodative.”

Dee, DHHS Services

“The boys at the birthday party had a great time and the staff was excellent.  They were extremely friendly, engaged, and easy to work with.”  

Blair Vick, Tower Birthday

“The ECU Campus Recreation & Wellness - Team Training Center is always helpful in accommodating our request. We had to schedule an afternoon activity and it was quite hot.  However, the staff leaders were thoughtful of the conditions and yet providing a challenging experience for our student group.”

Pitt Community College-Ambassadors

“On the anonymous feedback form that all of our students complete at the end of Boot Camp, the Challenge Course was the highest-rated activity.”  

Emily Johnson, Project STEPP

“It was amazing to see how well our students bonded with one another, and we were very impressed with how well they worked together in their teams.  The ropes course is a great tool for us to use as we kick off the start of a new school year!  It really brings the students together.  They couldn’t stop talking about it on the way home.”

 Craven Early College High School

“The facilitators did a fantastic job in setting the tone for the day; they were energetic, engaging and motivating. They created an environment where all the participants felt safe. The students felt very comfortable on the course and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”

Center for Student Leadership & Engagement

Joe O’Callahan, NACCO Materials Handling Group

“Thank you so much for working with me this summer. The Orientation Assistants loved the Ropes Course during training and it really helped us as a team.”
