Program Delivery Options:

A Word About Safety


 
 
In order for us to offer our clients successful and meaningful programs, we use a classic 3 step approach that ensures a high caliber of programming, no matter what the delivery methods are:
  1. What?  Making the plan.  We work in consultation with you to develop a program to meet your needs and the needs of your group.
  2. So What? From ideas to action.  We facilitate and instruct all of our programs at a level appropriate to our client group.
  3. Now What? Evaluation and support.  We connect with you post-program to ensure that your needs were met and to see if there is any further action or support required.

 
Using group challenges and initiatives, our local Ropes Course and wilderness travel experiences , adventure learning programs foster growth within individuals which leads to growth within groups. All of these options are tailored to suit your needs and can be used alone or in combination for your adventure learning program.
 
The Terracentric Adventure Learning Kit (TALK) Our adventures are portable! We are able to bring an entire indoor or outdoor 'off-site' experiential training experience to your facility. Choose from over 20 plus challenge elements (including low ropes course) and over two hundred experiential group oriented activities, simulations and initiatives, that can be set up and facilitated in your boardroom, parking lot, a park, retreat center or conference facility.
 
 
What Is A Challenge Ropes Course? 
A challenge course is like an obstacle course in the trees, or between poles. Suspended anywhere from a few inches off the ground, to 30 - 40 feet in the air, it is constructed using cable, rope, logs and other hardware. Specific activities and initiatives , called elements, promote varying degrees of both individual and team problem solving and decision making. Participants climb, swing, balance, jump and rappel on these structures, learning to overcome limitations and achieve an enhanced sense of self concept.
 
 
Terracentric’s Challenge Ropes Course Facility Located on 40 wooded acres along the Eagle River south of Powell River, our custom designed course is designed to help achieve the maximum Adventure Learning experience. Nestled in a lush riparian zone the Terracentric course starts with group initiative elements and progresses to a more challenging Low Ropes course and finally to our High Ropes where participants work to solve problems suspended high up in the rainforest canopy.

Examples include walking across a two-line bridge suspended 40 feet in the air and a super zip line ride through the rain forest canopy past a towering box canyon. The elements vary in level of difficulty, some simple to solve, others requiring more thought and planning.  Check back with us soon to see how are High Ropes Course is developing!  Also available at our Ropes Course location is an indoor workshop facility suitable for groups of up to 18 people.
