Customized adventure programs for Schools and universities promoting teamwork

College Team Building Ohio

Summit Vision provides a wide variety of team building programs designed to meet the diverse needs of each organization. 

We utilize adventure and experiential learning tools to assist your group in meeting its educational goals. All programming takes into consideration the goals of your group, the developmental level of individual members, and the physical, social & emotional safety of all participants.

Experiential learning requires students to become cognitively, physically & emotionally involved in the challenge placed before them. 

Summit Vision will meet with group leaders to customize a program that focus on Academic Concepts, Group Cohesion, Problem-Solving Skills, Healthy Decision-Making, Improving Relationships among team-members, Conflict Resolution, Character Development and/or other specialized needs. See below for Summit Vision Program Descriptions.

Summit Vision works with many Schools & Groups to provide multiple opportunities for participants to experience adventure-related activities throughout the calendar year.

Portable Programs: Can’t make it to us.  Summit Vision can travel to you and run our portable program at your site.  Whether a school, park, conference center or any other place you have in mind we can come to you.

Ground-Level Team-building (A.K.A. Initiatives):

Initiatives promote individual & team with a variety of challenges. Facilitators encourage students to accomplish activities that develop and improve Trust, Communication, Leadership, Problem-Solving, and Conflict-Resolution skills. Goals are integrated into group activity & questions for discussion. Initiatives can be modified for groups as young as K-3rd grade and engage participants for 3 – 3 1/2 hrs. Popular programs include: the Information Exchange, the “Heist”, Cooperative Games & Character Development.

Ropes Courses:

Ropes courses are a series of elements built on poles 33 – 55 feet above the ground. Participants engage in extensive safety training before attempting to overcome the challenges on the ropes courses. By taking safe risks, individuals are given the opportunity to reflect on themselves personally & as part of the larger group. The Ropes Course focuses on the idea of overcoming perceived limitations in the pursuit of individual & group goals. Our Ropes Courses include Giant Swings & Zip Lines as a program option. Participants must be 12 years or older to experience the Ropes Course. The Ropes Course is a 4 hour experience.

Everest Climbing Tower & High Elements:

The Climbing Tower & High Elements focus on many of the same goals as the Ropes Courses but also include other team members in the safety (or belay) system. The Climbing Tower includes: Climbing Walls, a Giant’s Ladder, Partnered Challenges & a Pamper Pole. . The Everest Climbing Tower is a 3 – 4 hour experience.

Pamper Pole

Pamper Pole/Leap of Faith is a 22′ telephone pole to climb up and balance on. Once a student has accomplished this, the next step is to jump out 8 1/2 feet and grab onto a trapeze bar. During this activity the team on the ground will belay the participant ensuring their safety. This is great for trust, communication and building confidence. In this challenge students wear a full-body harness. Physically it is not the hardest challenge we have, but mentally it can be the toughest.
