EASTCONN’S Adventure Program provides one day or multi-day experiential adventure programs adapted for all age level groups. Please see “What is a typical day like?” for sample itineraries. Activity options include a portable adventure day, indoor activities, initiatives, a high or low ropes challenge, indoor rock climbing, environmental education activities, service learning projects, and other adventure activities. Appropriate for large and small groups, the experiential activities are designed to explore team building, communication, diversity, trust, cooperation, problem-solving and most of all, having fun.
Our programs are designed to build self-confidence and strong teams for all members, regardless of their physical strength, gender, or age. Ensuring that all group members can participate in some way is part of the process in custom designing programs. We’ll provide more detailed information about what to expect and how best to prepare. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
We are creative, flexible, and open to providing activities that work for your group.
