Outdoor Challenge Course Programs

These programs are conducted on-campus at the Minnesota State Mankato outdoor challenge course. Outdoor activities might include belaying and climbing on the high ropes course and rappel/climbing tower or on-the-ground group problem-solving initiatives. Outdoor challenge course programs are conducted from April through mid-November, weather permitting.

Indoor Challenge Programs

During times of inclement weather and during the winter months, indoor programming is available on campus for on-the-ground teambuilding programs. These programs consist of a series of games, warm-up activities, collaborative group initiatives and problem solving. Off-campus programming of two or more hours in length is available and may be brought to a client's facility within a half-hour's drive from the Minnesota State Mankato campus. There are no indoor facilities for high challenge course programming at this time.

Group Size

Groups of varying sizes can be accommodated depending on the availability of staff and the activities utilized for a given group.

Program Length

Length of programming will vary according to group needs, ranging from a few hours to multi-day events.
