Team Building & Adventure Rentals
The Dartmouth YMCA offers a variety of opportunities for groups and teams of all sorts to build a sense of community and energize.
Team Building & Initiative Philosophy
To build a good team you have to learn how to build confidence, trust and friendship within your group. Our team building and initiative programs develop all of the necessary skills to have a strong and efficient team. Through a variety of physical challenges such as our Ropes Course, Rock Wall, and initiative games we focus on:
- Building confidence
- Communication skills
- Active listening and caring for others
- Collaborative skills
- Creative thinking and idea exchange
- Problem solving
- Supportive skills
Teams will have an opportunity debrief at the end of the day to answer important questions such as: What happened? What does this mean for our team? What are we going to do with what we learned?
Our low ropes and initiative games are developed to encourage teamwork and relationship building by exposing a groups ability to think critically and have fun in the process. Activities can be selected to cater to the goals of each individual group.
The High Ropes course is intended to challenge individuals self esteem and push them to higher levels. With six high ropes elements we are able to design a program that fits the needs and challenges of each group.
The rock wall and Jacob’s ladder give groups an opportunity to feel the power of confidence, success, and teamwork in two-person teams or individuals.
