Team Building

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Looking for an outdoor experience to increase the self-esteem, prob­lem-solving and communication skills for the students of your classroom. Jefferson Memorial Forest staff can facilitate teambuilding field trips with your students at our low and high challenge course.  Using the medium of safe but challenging activities, students examine their leadership/group styles while participating in group problem-solving processes, trust building activities and healthy risk taking. Each program can be custom tailored to fit the specific needs or goals of your school or organization.

Low Course Description

 Our low course consists of 14 different obstacles that challenge your group mentally and physically.  Each obstacle fills a need to focus on a particular aspect of teamwork. The overall design of the teams course is beneficial to the quality and success of our teambuilding programs and provides options to create challenges appropriate for different ages and ability levels of participants.

Elevated Teams Description

Coming in fall 2022, JMF will be adding a series of elevated tree platforms to expand teambuilding experiences. Groups will be tasked with helping from above and below to solve wire crossings and climbing elements together. This newly added course will also serve as an introduction to tree canopy zip courses!

If needed, JMF staff can come to your school or organization and facilitate teambuilding using portable activities! Call our program office to schedule a remote session at (502) 366-5432.
