Adam Kreiger Adventure Program
What is an Adventure Program
Adventure in this context provides people with an opportunity to learn something about themselves, others, and the environment around them. This can be accomplished through a number of activities that involve varying levels of strategy, cooperation, trust, and ultimately group effort. Most of the activities during a typical program take place within a few feet from the ground. They are designed to push participants to further realize their own potential, as well as that of their group. These games, team-building initiatives and problem-solving activities make up the Challenge Course (often referred to as a 'Ropes Course').
Our state-of-the-art Challenge Course, located on the campus of Hopkins School in New Haven, CT was installed by Karl Rohnke, Project Adventure, Inc. and Northeast Adventure, LLC. It has about 30 low and high elements; structures that are made up of any series or combination of wires, ropes, cables, tires, and wood. Both indoor and outdoor activities focus on a wide range of objectives which may include establishing group trust, cohesion, and/or communication. Nearly all the activities are designed to incorporate feasible challenges; physical as well as mental. Through some of the latest developments in Challenge Course technology, we are able to offer suitable and enjoyable programs for participants of all abilities. Each program differs based on the goals and objectives of the participants and will be handled at a pace that is appropriate and suitable for each respective group.
