Directed by Patrick Telman of the South Windsor Parks and Recreation Department. Patrick has 26 years of experience in teambuilding programs and challenge course administration. He has been trained by programs such as Project Adventure and Northeast Adventure and has run challenge course programs for numerous YMCA s and Girls Scout Councils. This program is designed for youth ages 12-15 and is based on a series of challenges using the elements of the South Windsor Teambuilding and Leadership Center at Nevers Park. These tasks designed to encourage cooperation, trust, communication, self confidence and the ability to work with others to achieve mutual goals. The program begins with the participation in games and initiative activities that are designed to encourage the group to utilize skills required to solve problems or achieve goals. Frequently the group will process the experiences by sharing ideas and insights. As the group and the individual grow, the challenges increase as does the adventure. Your child will have the opportunity to ride go zip lining, climbing walls and giant swings in a safe controlled environment.
