Outdoor Education

Our Outdoor Education Program provides your group with activities that are both mentally and physically challenging. We host day programs and overnight programs which can accommodate any group size. Whether catching a trapeze bar 30 feet above the ground, racing your best friend down the dual zip lines, tracking white-tailed deer across the wetlands, or watching the growth cycle of a crop over a season, the Challenge and Retreat Center provides a unique learning experience that cannot be replicated in a classroom.

We can also accommodate groups who may want to spend the day playing sports, relaxing by the pool, taking hikes on one of our many nature trails and enjoying a catered lunch. We treat each guest individually and we pledge to design a program that meets your needs.
