"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success" - Henry Ford

The Team Building Program is a new addition to OA. The Outdoor Adventure program offers custom adventure trips and team building workshops that can enhance your next group gathering. The program is available to groups of all sizes who want to improve their communication, leadership, or just to get to know each other better. We will create a custom workshop that uses mental, physical, and emotional challenges in a fun, yet safe and controlled manner. Workshops can be one to six hours for various group sizes.  We would be happy to plan an exciting experience for any student organization, campus or faculty department, as well as community group.
