Group Adventures are the Ultimate Team Building Activity


In today’s fast-paced, technologically-savvy world, many of us feel connected to our friends, family and co-workers twenty-four hours a day through Facebook, cell phones and computers. However, a deeper sense of connection is often missing. Spending face-to-face time with friends, team members and colleagues cannot be replaced by electronic communication. Although we may feel intimately connected to each other through electronic media, it is quite easy to present a social facade that lacks any real emotional depth or intimacy. By spending a challenging and fun day together at an adventure park that offers tailored team building activities for your particular group, the group members will be offered the opportunity to increase friendships and connections in a way that is not possible through electronic media. Asheville Treetops Adventure Park is a wonderful facility that offers unique field trip ideas to groups of students, sporting team members or corporate organizations. The park offers individuals the opportunity to connect to each other in a deeper way than is usually possible in a classroom, on a baseball field or in a board room. The group activities that are offered at Treetops Adventure Park include over fifty unique challenges along four different adventure trails. The trails range in difficulty from moderate to advanced, so that the individuals and/or group leaders can choose an appropriate level of challenge. Each trail presents ten to fifteen adventure challenges to the participants, which they must successfully complete in order to finish a circuit. Additionally, the park staff can facilitate experiential group activities, both on and off the ground, in order to more fully integrate the team building effects of a group adventure. Students will love this creative and unique field trip idea. Although there are many field trip ideas in Asheville, many students will thoroughly enjoy stepping out of the artificial environment of the classroom and spending a day out in the sunshine among the treetops. During a field trip to Asheville Treetops Adventure Park, students will be afforded the opportunity to access skills, courage and perseverance that they may have been unaware that they even had. Additionally, the students will be brought closer together as they work as a team to successfully complete the circuits. Adult participants will also benefit from traversing the courses together in a group activity format. In a corporate environment or on a sports team, there is often an emphasis placed on competition instead of cooperation. During a treetop challenge, colleagues will gain a deeper appreciation of each individual’s unique skills and talents as they zip, jump and swing to a successful circuit completion. By pulling together as team members, adult participants will more readily recognize the value of interdependence. In short, if you’re looking for an opportunity to build a team atmosphere in your school or classroom, office or corporation, church group or youth group, Asheville Treetops Adventure is an outstanding choice to experience a unique group adventure in Asheville.
